Excerpts from wikipedia,
Genital warts (or Condylomata
acuminata, venereal warts, anal warts
and anogenital warts) is a highly
contagious sexually transmitted disease
caused by some sub-types of human
papillomavirus (HPV). It is spread through
direct skin-to-skin contact during oral,
genital, or anal sex with an infected partner.
Warts are the most easily recognized
symptom of genital HPV infection, where
types 6 and 11 are responsible for 90% of
genital warts cases. Whilst of those
infected with genital HPV it is estimated that
only a "small percentage" (between
1% and 5%) develop genital warts,
those infected can still transmit the virus.
Other types of HPV also cause cervical
cancer and probably most anal cancers,
however it is important to underline that the
types of HPV that cause the overwhelming
majority of genital warts are not the same
as those that can potentially increase the
risk of genital or anal cancer.
HPV prevalence at any one time has been
observed in some studies at 27% over all
sexually active people, rising to 45%
between the ages of 14 and 19.
Signs and symptoms
Genital warts often occur in clusters and can
be very tiny or can spread into large masses
in the genital or penis area. In other cases
they look like small stalks. In women they
occur on the outside and inside of the
vagina, on the opening (cervix) to the womb
(uterus), or around (or inside) the anus.
They are approximately as prevalent in men
but the symptoms may be less obvious.
When present, they usually are seen on the
tip of the penis. They also may be found on
the shaft of the penis, on the scrotum, or
around (or inside) the anus. Rarely, genital
warts also can develop in the mouth or
throat of a person who has had oral sex with
an infected person. This infection can affect both Men and Women. The best prevention is abstinence. Please if anyone has an untreated STI, visit your doctor immediately and educate people about it. Doctors are trying sha..
