Genital Warts

Warts are caused by viruses and can appear anywhere on the body. Genital warts, or warts in the genital area, are caused by the human papillomavirus, also known as HPV. Genital warts are transmitted easily by sexual contact. HPV infection is the most common STI in North America and may cause cervical, penile, and anal cancer. The Center for Disease and Control estimates that at least 50% of sexually active individuals will contract a genital HPV infection at some time in their lives.


After a person has been infected by HPV, it may take one to three months (or even longer in some cases) for the warts to appear. Some infected individuals may never develop warts. Genital warts look like small pink or red growths in or around the genitals. The warts may vary in appearance from looking like the small parts of a cauliflower to being very tiny and difficult to see. Often they appear in groups of three to four. They may grow and spread rapidly. Usually the warts are not painful, however, in some cases they may cause pain, bleeding, and itching. Like many STI's, HPV does not always have symptoms, but when symptoms do occur, warts may be seen around the genital region. In women, genital warts can develop on the outside and the inside of the vagina, on the cervix, or around the anus. In men, warts may appear on the shaft or on the tip of the penis, on the scrotum, or around the anus. There is a possibility that genital warts can also develop in the mouth or the throat of a person who has had oral sex with an infected person.


People with visible warts or who suspect that they may have been infected should be examined by a doctor and treated as necessary. The doctor may perform a number of tests to check for genital warts, including an examination of visible growths to see if they look like genital warts. In addition, an application of a mild acetic acid solution (similar to vinegar) will highlight any existing warts that are less visible. The doctor may also perform a complete pelvic exam and pap smear for women and an examination of the rectum.

Unfortunately there is currently no treatment that can kill the virus that causes warts. Your doctor, however, can remove warts by applying chemicals, by freezing them with liquid nitrogen, or by laser therapy. Prescription treatments are available in some cases for in-home care. If a wart is too large or difficult to treat, surgery may be necessary. If warts reappear after treatment, a patient should return to their doctor.


Condoms can provide some protection in preventing the spread of genital warts if used correctly. But condoms are not 100% effective in preventing the transmission of warts, since they do not cover the entire penis or surrounding areas.

Gardasil is the first vaccine available for the prevention of HPV. The vaccine protects against infection from four common strands of the virus, including two (HPV-6 and HPV-11) that account for about 90% of genital warts. The vaccine is highly recommended for women and girls between 9 and 26 years in age.
