Why: e.g. vulva, vagina, clitoris, cervix, around the anus, penis, scrotum.
Why: genital warts recur even after appropriate therapy in a high percentage of patients. If left untreated genital warts may resolve on their own, remain unchanged, or grow.
Why: Genital warts are caused by one or more types of human papilloma virus (HPV), most commonly 6 and 11, but sometimes types 16, 18, 31 and 33. The importance of HPV infection is that types 16,18, 31 and 33 are involved with the development of cervical cancer, vulval cancer and penile cancer. The risk of cervical cancer developing from vulval warts is small.
Why: The human papilloma virus that causes warts is usually (but not always) transmitted sexually. HPV is the most prevalent sexually transmitted disease in developed countries.
Why: In most cases, the genital warts are without symptoms but some people complain of local itching and burning.
Why: may occur if the warts involve the entrance to the vagina.
