It is estimated that every minute in the United States, there is a new case of genital warts. Genital warts are caused by human papillomavirus (HPV). Human Papillomavirus is a virus from the papillomavirus family that is capable of infecting humans. More than 30-40 types of HPV are typically transmitted through sexual contact and infect the anogenital region. The majority of nearly 200 types of HPV cause no symptoms in most people, but some types can cause warts and other cancers in the genital regions. HPV infection is a cause of nearly all cervical cancer. Although, most infections with these types do not cause disease.
The most easily recognized sign of genital HPV infection is genital or anal warts. While a wide variety of HPV types can cause genital warts, types 6 & 11 account for about 90% of all cases. People can transmit the virus to others even if they don’t display overt symptoms of infection. The types of HPV that cause genital warts are usually different from the types that cause warts on other parts of the body, like hands and inner thighs. Each day in the U.S., 30 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer. HPV Types 16 & 18 cause about 75% of cervical cases in females. HPV Types 16 & 18 also cause up to 50% of vulvar cancer and about 70% of vaginal cancer cases.
About 2/3 people will get genital warts after having any kind of genital contact with someone infected. They are usually flesh-colored growths that can be raised or flat, small or large and alone or in clusters. Genital warts don’t always look the same though.
