Genital Warts Overview

A Brief Overview of Genital Warts and the Symptoms

Genital warts
vary from small, flat flesh colored or gray bumps, they can be so as small as a pens ball point or grow to rather awful looking things if you allowed them to get out of control, which you cant miss, they cluster that resembles an ugly cauliflower. They are usually not painful, although they may cause mild pain, bleeding, and itching.

Genital warts can show up on women’s vulva and cervix and inside and the surrounding area of the vagina and anus. And in men, genital warts can appear anywhere on the scrotum, penis and anus. There have been recorded cases of genital warts reaching the groin and thigh. The worst cases can lead to cancer of the cervix on women and cancer of the penis in men.

Genital warts are caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV). There are many kinds of HPV. Not all of them cause genital warts, so you can be HPV infected without the ugly genital warts.
