What Are Genital Warts?
Genital Warts may appear on the genital area as a single or cluster of skin-toned or dark-colored bumps. They may appear raised and inflamed, or small and flat. These warts may appear on both men or women. These warts don't typically cause pain, but they may still be a cause for severe complications such as cervical or rectal cancer and should be discussed with your physician.
Genital Wart Causes
Human Papillomavirus (HPV) is the most common sexually transmitted disease and the leading cause of genital warts. HPV affects an estimated 50% of sexually active individuals, and warts may not become present if the immune system effectively prevents them. When the immune system becomes compromised, or several months after sexual contact, warts may appear.
Genital Wart Treatments
Treating genital warts can be done in a variety of ways. However, some may not require treatment based upon severity. Treating the visible wart may not guarantee the virus to be treated, and further options should be discussed with your physician. Conventional treatments for genital warts may include:
- Cryotherapy (freezing)
- Surgical excision, or laser treatments
- Prescription medicated oral or topical treatments
- Injectable treatments
It is vital to not try to treat genital warts yourself at home. Pain and inflammation, as well as severe bleeding, may occur. Our physicians offer complete discretion and privacy for these concerns and find the best treatment modality for you.
