Genital Warts

Genital warts are common and are caused by certain types of the human papillomavirus (HPV) so being one of the most common sexually transmitted infections almost all sexually active people could be infected at some point in their lives.

They may look like small flesh – colored bumps or have a cauliflower appearance. In many cases, the warts are too small to be visible.


Some strains of genital HPV can cause genital warts, while others can cause cancer.

Currently there are vaccionation schemes that, if applied on time can eradicate the possibility of suffering from cervical cancer , anorectal cancer and minimize the appearance of genital warts due to HPV infection.

Genital warts are usually spread during vaginal, anal and oral sex with an infected person as they are spread by skin to skin contact and can be spread even when there is no ejaculation and without the penis entering the vagina.
