Genital Warts (HPV): Symptoms and Treatment

Posted by:  
Category: STDs

Genital Warts are mainly spread through unprotected sexual contact and are caused by the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV), appearing on the genitals or rectal area as cauliflower-like growths, or as flat growths with stalks.

Anybody who engages in sexual intercourse without using a condom is at risk from infection, and these warts are a very common kind of S.T.I., particularly among young people in their twenties.

There are several kinds of HPV, some of which are associated with the early stages of cervical cancer: they do not usually hurt, but they may cause itching or a slight burning sensation. In fact, symptoms often go undetected, so it is extremely important for those at risk to have frequent check-ups for the presence of this disease.

A sudden and prolific eruption of genital warts could suggest a defect in the immune system, perhaps caused by HIV infection. Anyone affected should immediately contact their doctor.
