Hpv Warts On Hands

Of the 10 million cases of cancer that develop annually throughout the world, more than 15% are estimated to be attributable to infectious agents. Infection by human papilloma viruses (HPVs) accounts for approximately 30% of these cancers, with hepatitis B and C viruses and Helicobacter pylori together accounting for another 60% of cancers with an infectious etiology.

HPVs infect the stratified squamous epithelia of skin and mucous membranes, where they cause benign lesions, some of which have the potential to progress to invasive cancer. HPVs are small, nonenveloped viruses whose approximately 8-kb circular genome encodes 2 structural proteins, L1 and L2, that form the viral capsid, plus several nonstructural proteins that are important for the virus life cycle but are not incorporated into virions.

To establish infection, microtrauma or erosion of the overlying epithelial layers is thought to enable HPVs to infect cells of the basal epithelial layer, where the stem cells and other long-lived cells are found. To establish infection, the virus must infect basal epithelial cells that are long lived or have stem cell-like properties. Microtrauma to the suprabasal epidermal cells probably enables the virus to infect the cell within the basal layer.

The viral genome maintains itself as an episome in basal cells, where the viral genes are poorly expressed. Viral replication takes place in suprabasal layers and is tied to the epidermal differentiation process. The presence of the virus causes morphological abnormalities in the epithelium, including papillomatosis, parakeratosis, and koilocytosis. Progeny virus is released in desquamated ces.

HPV infections tend to last months or years because the viral genome successfully parasitizes these cells and because the virus evades the immune system by limiting most viral gene expression and viral replication to suprabasal cell layers. Most infections are self-limited, presumably because the host eventually mounts a successful immune response.

The benign lesions induced by HPVs include nongenital and anogenital skin warts, oral and laryngeal papillomas, and anogenital mucosal condylomata. Progression from a benign cervical lesion to invasive cervical cancer. Infection by oncogenic HPV types, especially HPV16, may directly cause a benign condylomatous lesion, low-grade dysplasia, or sometimes even an early high-grade lesion.

Carcinoma in situ rarely occurs until several years after infection. It results from the combined effects of HPV genes, particularly those encoding E6 and E7, which are the 2 viral oncoproteins that are preferentially retained and expressed in cervical cancers; integration of the viral DNA into the host DNA; and a series of genetic and epigenetic changes in cellular genes. HSIL, high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion; LSIL, low-grade squamous intraepithelial lesn.

Anogenital infections are almost always transmitted sexually. Long-term infection by a subset of HPVs can lead to malignant anogenital tumors, including cancers of the anus, penis, vulva, vagina, and cervix. A proportion of oral cancer is also attributable to HPV. While HPV infection has been associated on limited occasions with esophageal cancer and skin cancer, a frequent causal link, although plausible, remains more tenuous.

Most doctors use cauterization or freezing as a first option to cure genital warts. Unfortunately, success achieved with this method is often temporary and the warts soon reappear. For genital warts, cures may involve having to surgically excise or burn them off. After surgical intervention or chemical acids are used, one can expect a scar in that area.

Warts occurring on the body, face, feet, hands or genitals can be successfully eliminated with AntiWarts-Rx. This product is made from strictly certified organic antiviral plant material and concentrated with naturally occurring monoterpene ketones which have tremendous antiviral effects against the wart virus, HPV, as demonstrated in published scientific studies.

As some go their entire life without ever having a wart, while others seem prone to the infection, it is commonly believed occurrences of warts are associated with a lower immunity against HPV. As a result, ImmunoDrops for Warts is a powerful organic dietary supplement developed by NaturesPharma exclusively to combat HPV and strengthen immune parameters for those afflicted with warts.

Our anti-warts treatments are characterized by very strong and real pharmacological activities which unequivocally qualifies them as a€œethical drugsa€. The antiviral properties of these treatments are undisputed and basic common sense must be considered when using any treatment, natural or synthetic.

    Can you get HPV warts on your hands if you handshake a person who has it?
    I handshake a person who had a bump on his hands that look like HPV wart,I am not sure but I think that it was HPV because the bump looked like cauliflower.I read that you can get HPV on your hands too because HPV is transmited from skin to skin contact.
    After the handshake,after 10-15 minutes I went home and I washed my hands with antibacterial soap.The same day I got this very small bumps that itch a lot.Did I caught HPV or not?
    Doesn’t it take like 2 weeks or something to get the HPV?Is it possible to get it right away or the bumps that itch are from something else.
    If you get HPV from skin to skin contact ,does it have to mean that I will get it?
    If I get the HPV wart on my hand, when I shower and wash my vagina with the same hand,does this mean that I will get HPV warts on my vagina?
    I am a virgin and don’t have any HPV warts on my vagia or STD’s.
    I would like your opinion on this,if there are any doctors,dermatologists please answer!!!

    You can get warts through skin to skin contact as they are caused by a virus. Warts don’t itch, so I doubt the spots you have are warts.

    HPV types commonly found on the hands, elbows, feet parts of the body that are not genital or oral are not usually associated with the HPV types that are most commonly transmitted during sex.

    For the most part genital HPV types stay on the genital area.

    There is a chance that infants can acquire genital HPV types (again these HPV are usually on the child’s genital area) trough the ferry of hands to genital area. Studies have shown where some people with genital HPV types harbored the virus under the fingernails. The virus always needs an entry point…some type of micro abrasion of the skin. Low risk HPV types 6 and 11 can be transmitted to an infant’s larynx through vaginal birth. This type of transmission is very rare.

    The vaccine only prevents 4 genital HPV types two low risk HPV types (6 and 11) and two high risk HPV types 16 and 18. They are about 40 genital high and low risk HPV tpes.

    Please do not make fun, this is difficult enough.

    I have had warts on my hands, and i know that warts can spread and be contagious…I now have similar wart-like bumps around my anus.

    I am almost positive that i did not get the bumps from sexual activity, as i am a prude! lol.

    Usually hand warts are a different strand of HPV but considering that genital warts can spread its possible, the only sure fire way is to have a biopsy done. Also although you may be a prude, the chances of contracting HPV are really high, so statistically if you slept with 4 people 3 of them was probably positive.

    Oh and it doesnt sound like HERPES

    What is the difference between warts on your hands and the warts on your genitals caused by HPV?
    I know that HPV causes genital warts, but can the genital warts be found anywhere else on the body besides the anus and mouth/throat? I also know that warts come from a variety of viruses, but if you have warts on your genitals, are they automatically caused from HPV, or are they tested for another viral strain? Does HPV strains include any wart that can be found in the genital area?

    One common property of all papilloma viruses is that they are supposed to cause odd or excessive growth of epithelial tissue. In some cases this means warts. In other cases, it means cancer.

    There are hundreds of strains of human papilloma viruses. Some affect the skin on the hands and feet. Some affect the genitals.

    If you have genital warts, it is generally acknowledged to be some form of HPV because as I said earlier, papilloma viruses cause warts and epithelial cancers. The very origin of the term “papilloma” referred to warts (though if you must get into etymology, it’s from a word for “butterfly”).

    HPV viruses & oral sex?
    I’ve been doing a lot of research for a friend who just found out she has a genital strain of HPV. She goes in to her Dr. on Monday to do another test to find out which strain.

    I’ve found lots of good information; and know that there are over 100 different types of strains of HPV, some affect the genitals, some affect the hands and feet and some affect the throat.

    My question is this; if a person has a genital strain of HPV can that be passed to another through oral sex? I can not find a cut and dry answer on whether or not, the giver of oral sex on an infected person would catch the same strain (which is genital) or if it would become the strain that affects the throat? Also, if you were just “fooling around” with an infected person’s genitalia, would that person contract the strain to their hands/feet?

    This is very interesting and confusing for me. How can you pass a genital strain of HPV to a person on their hands/feet or throat, if the HPV that causes warts on hands/feet or throat are a completely different strain of HPV?

    HPV is the human papilloma virus, not the herpes simplex virus. The HPV virus does have is preferred location like feet or genitals, but the mouth is mucous membrane like the genitals so transmission does happen. In fact, it is now causing mouth and throat cancer in addition to cervical cancer. Transmitting from genitals to another area by the hands is also possible, but somewhat less likely. Depends on the persons immunity to the virus.

    There would be a possibility that non-genital warts could affect the cervix, vaginal canal or vulva. A person at more risk of having non-genital HPV affect the genital area would be someone with a compromised immune system or someone with an organ transplant.

    A Pap smear looks for abnormal cell changes of the cervix. A Pap smear is not an HPV test. Once abnormal cell changes are seen on a Pap test then a second or reflex HPV test is done confirming high risk HPV types. The HPV test does not screen for low risk HPV types and the Pap test does not screen for all 40 genital HPV types. Your Pap test can be negative but you can have the virus…the virus not causing any cell changes.

    If by chance non-genital warts did affect the cervix…and did cause abnormal cell change (which would probably be rare) your HPV could be negative because you did not have one of the HPV types the test screen for. A Pap test is not an overall screening for the entire genital area.
    They are two FDA approved HPV test for the cervix. Cervista and the Hybrid Capture® 2
    HPV DNA

    Certain HPV types tend to occur at particular anatomic sites; however, warts of any HPV type may occur at any site. The primary clinical manifestations of HPV infection include common warts, genital warts, flat warts, and deep palmoplantar warts (myrmecia). Less common manifestations of HPV infection include focal epithelial hyperplasia (Heck disease),1 epidermodysplasia verruciformis, and plantar cysts. Warts are transmitted by direct or indirect contact, and predisposing factors include disruption to the normal epithelial barrier. Treatment can be difficult, with frequent failures and recurrences. Many warts, however, resolve spontaneously within a few years.

    I have some questions about hpv?
    Alright so I would really like help with this one! I will give you 10 points. I have some questions about HPV. I have the type where you have genital warts and I’m a girl. I used to avoid guys because I was way too embarrassed about having this but I have started a relationship recently and I know I will have to bring it up soon.

    1. Is HPV curable? I have read that hpv can go away in as little as two years if your immune system is really good and you will be totally rid of it. I have also heard that you can only get rid of the symptoms temporarily but will always have hpv for life. So which one is true? I have been eating extremely healthy ever since I found out I had this. I found out about half a year ago. I’m trying to get my immune system to fight this!

    2. Will I ever be able to have sex again or is it just waay too risky to have sex. Like can a guy still finger me? Or will he get hpv warts on his hands. but what if he washed his hands? I was also thinking. . what if my bf wore tight boxers( or a couple layers of them) and cut a small hole where his genitalia is and wore a condom? Would that prevent skin to skin contact? Would you consider that to be really safe? Or is there still a chance of passing it onto him? I really don’t want to stay away from sex :s

    3. How do you get rid of genital warts! I have tried aldara cream and it doesn’t seem to be working. I have also tried garlic pills and folic acid pills but nothing is working. They are just getting bigger. Does anybody know about the leep procedure? I am desperate to get rid of these warts. They have spread to my lower thighs and I am scared I won’t be able to wear shorts this summer :s Oh and can I spread the warts myself? Like if I touch my warts and touch somewhere else down there will I spread them to the new area? Because they seem to be multiplying really fast.

    4. How do you tell your partner you have hpv and how far into the relationship should you tell them and should I mention my warts at all or will that totally gross him out? ‘Guys if you are reading this, would your feelings change at all if your gf told you she has hpv? Would you be accepting of it or would you be like damnt this really sucks, I can’t have sex with her, I need to find a gf that I will be able to have my way with’. I want to know what guys think of girls that have this? Is Hpv really that common?

    Thank you for answering me! I just really badly want to know about hpv. It’s kind of ruining my life right now and making me upset.

    Warts are caused by a virus, so any contact with other body parts- like scatching them, and then scratching another body part will spread it. Personal hygiene should also be of concern.

    “No, they are not caused by the same virus. Warts on the hands and feet are caused by HPV 1 & 2, while genital warts are cause by types 6 & 11……”

    All warts are not created equal; there are a variety of STRAINS of the HPV virus in existence. There is no scientific evidence to suggest that these two entirely different strains are “interchangeable” and can jump back and forth. Look at the H5-N1 strain of avian influenza, for example. The enormous worldwide concern is that this particular strain of virus (it’s DNA) – now or at some later point in time- is mutating to the point where an avian “host” is no longer required to transmit the disease. In other words, that this viral strain can be transmitted directly from human to human.

    “The Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) causes warts and a particular strain of this virus causes genital warts. Genital warts are relatively easy to detect; they are small lumps that typically have an irregular cauliflower-like surface. The colour and shape of a wart varies depending on its location on the body. Unlike men, who develop genital warts only on the surface of the genitals, women can have warts appear inside their vagina as well.”

    If pap smear is negative, will my partner still get HPV virus, even tho i have warts on my hand?
    HPV is warts, and there are different strains, i’d like to know if this could be an STD if i have it on my hands.
    So what im saying is, will my partner get genital warts? And how much of a threat is it? I don’t want anything to happen to him, so i feel like i have to end this relationship because of my warts on my hand. This is extremely upsetting for me, and but i would kill myself if anything happens to him.
    i dont have genital warts just warts on my hand. But what i don’t understand is will i cause genital warts during sexual contact with it, since it’s a skin virus.

    Yes, you do. ALL warts are caused by the Human papillomavirus (HPV), which isn’t just a SINGLE virus, but a FAMILY of over 100 viruses.

    HPV is transmitted by contact, which means you CAN get them by touch / holding hands, though it is more commonly contracted through the common use of (personal) items such as towels.

    According to webmd.com, warts are caused by HPV. So, in theory, if someone has sexual activity with someone who has warts on their hands, can you become infected and have it cause cervical cancer or something?

    Do I have HPV? I have hand warts that won’t go away and chronic canker sores in my mouth. Is this something?
    I have known this girl that I just started recently dating for about a year. I had thought that I had a pretty good idea of her sex history as we had mutual friends. I started to date her about 2 months ago, and we have been having sex for about a month and a half.
    I have had warts before on my hand, but they always came by themselves and went away easily with OTC drugs. I assumed that I got these warts from my job at Jamba Juice, sometimes I would handle dirty objects like on the floor or something. For the past month I’ve noticed that there are now about 5-6 warts on my left hand that are not going away with my previous treatment. In addition about 2 weeks ago I noticed that the inside of my mouth has a chronic canker sore (once one heals, another comes about a day later). Also, my tongue is even starting to hurt too in specific areas which also look like canker sores. Some other risk factors are that I had recently stopped smoking (which I had been doing for about 4 years), I had taken ecstasy a few times over the summer for the first time (I quit), and I recently got accepted into nursing school where I take care of patients about twice a week.
    However the risk factor that concerns me the most is with my girlfriend. Recently in a conversation she had revealed to me that her ex-boyfriend was involved in man-on-man pornography while having sex with her. This greatly upset me but she assured me that she was tested negative for everything. However after sharing with a few close friends about my problem, they all had heard rumors of her getting herpes. I also checked in on this and her friends told me no.
    I am very concerned and embarrassed about this. My question is are my symptoms any obvious clinical manifestations of a certain STD (i’m worried most about having contracted HPV)? Should I be worried about having contracted anything? I am still working on my health insurance so it’ll be a while until I can get tested, and any insight you might have into my problem would be greatly appreciated.

    Hand warts is HPV. There are 100′s of types of HPV. All warts are contagious. I didn’t know this as a child. You should ALWAYS wear gloves and wash your hands between patients and after patients in the health care field. You should also know that you can get tested for free for any std. Canker sores should not be recurrent like that. Sounds like you have oral herpes and it may not have come from your girl. It could have been from as much as 10 years prior. May have been from just a kiss or sharing a drink with a buddy. Your drug use may have lowered your immune system ergo you are getting crazy outbreaks. Go get tested, and while you are at it get a full panel. HIV, HPV, HSV, EVERYTHING since not only were their rumors but your girl’s ex was in high risk group. Good luck!

    Also to the poster who says HPV can’t be found on hands-all warts are HPV! You can get sexually transmitted HPV on the soles of your feet, your hands, your thighs and testicles, your mouth, during birth, and a host of other ways. YOu can also get herpes on hands, feet, back of legs anywhere. So maybe you didn’t search the right sites dear. But misinformation is why people are still getting AIDS and why Syphillis is back in the US big time and why people are spreading herpes and warts.

    Warts on my girlfriends hands… HPV, HSV, or simple warts?
    My girlfriend has warts around her palms and fingers, I’m worried that they may be HPV or HSV. Is there anyway I can be sure they are HPV or HSV? She says they are just “warts” but I am no doctor and would rather not end up with an std

    Here’s the tale, Sparky. All warts are caused by some member of the HPV family. Human papilloma virus is a huge group, and each one likes to make warts. They each just have their more favorite part to infect. Some like fingers and hands, some like feet- plantar warts, and some like the groin. Those cause the famous genital warts. There are also a few that cause cervical warts, which worry women and not men. The sort your girlfriend has are just garden variety warts, and your pet is quite safe from those most likely. They are not considered a sexually transmitted disease. All this said, if you want to protect yourself, when you have sex you should wear a condom. You can at least see warts. You need to worry about the things you can’t see, and still catch. You can transmit the cervical varieties of HPV, and even chlamydia, and have no clue you carry it until you give it to some girl and she comes back to tell you. At some point, you may even pick up Herpes. That will be a permanent gift, and not one you would want to share with the real love of your life. Girls with HIV also won’t exactly have it tatooed on their foreheads either. So stop worrying about the warts on her hands. You can catch those just holding her hand, but it’s not likely and even so wouldn’t be the end of the world. Those are easy to get rid of too. What should worry you is the stuff you can’t see. So wear a condom, or forgo the play.

    STD infestedly speaking: If I get warts on my hands, can I still get the HPV vaccine?
    Okay so I have a wart on my finger, and I just looked up what to do to get rid of it and it said it’s from the HPV family.

    Well I’m still a virgin and I’m wondering if I can still get the HPV vaccine (you know, the “one less” commercials?) even though I have a form of HPV already.

    The vaccine is for different strains of HPV, two which cause cervical cancer, 16 and 18, and two which cause genital warts, 6 and 11.

    Common warts are caused by 2 and 7. Gardasil is only intended for women, and it wouldn’t help with the strain you have.

    Just buy that stuff that freezes the wart and freeze it off. Or go to your doctor and have him freeze it off.

    Questions about HPV/Warts?
    If you have no surfacing warts at the time, can you still spread the HPV virus?

    Can the HPV virus be present on the skin without a wart being present?

    If any type of bodily fluid containing HPV comes in contact with your skin, can that alone penetrate the skin and cause a wart to grow?

    For the last 3 years, I have had multiple upon multiple warts appear on my hand. I have finally gotten rid of every last one but I have the fear that they will reappear in the future and I am not sure exactly what causes them or if I will still be able to spread them if they are all gone. I do not know if they appear because I come in contact with my or somebody else’s bodily fluid, or if they were just spreading around because of the existing warts on my hand.

    Do I have to make sure that my own bodily fluids do not touch my hands to keep from getting warts again? Can warts appear from body fluid to skin contact?

    I’m so frustrated with this.

    HPV and loss of warts?
    Hi,

    I know that HPV can cause genital warts, but I also read that some types of HPV can cause warts on the hands and close to the fingernails.

    Well, for a long time I had a few warts like this (close to fingernails etc). However, I’ve only just noticed that they aren’t there anymore, and I had the last Gardasil injection in April.

    Does this possibly mean that I already had HPV and now I don’t? I’m a little bit confused, and I don’t think the warts would have just gone away on their own, as I had them for a very long time before I had the Gardasil injections.

    What do you think?

    Thanks!

    There are many different strains of HPV, and yes it is possible that they can go away on their own, and it usually does take a long period of time. Gardasil also only protects certain types of HPV, not all of them.
    For a lot of healthy people, you body can shed the HPV Virus, so usually, if you dont have any signs of warts on ur bosy for 2 years, it is said that your body had cured the virus.

    Is it possible to infect myself with HPV warts this way?
    Lets say I’ve touched an infectious wart with my hand.
    And immediately, I put on hand soap and rubbed the hand soap in my hands…
    then my cellphone rings. My hands still has hand soap which isn’t rinsed.. and I answered my phone. I got my phone wet and has soap on it. Then I rinsed my hands.. Then minutes later…
    When i got my phone again, accidentally, the phone hit my lip and mouth area. (the phone still wasn’t rinsed, still has soap and water on it)

    Should I not touch my phone also because hpv is still there?

    Is it possible that, by the phone, i could’ve spread the wart on my lip and mouth area?

    Should I worry about it?

    warts HPV contagious? help!?
    This guy that i just started seeing had a rough patch on his hand. after i convinced him to get it checked it turned out to be a wart.

    we have been holding hands. It noticed it in his left hand under his thumb. I told him to get his genitals checked too which he hasnt done yet.

    His planning on getting it cut out.

    My question after they have cut out the wart. can I still catch it?

    I dont wanna get wart or HPV virus we have not had sex yet. only kiss and hold hands.

    is the HPV virus still active? can I catch this virus that causes a couple of cancers like cervical cancer?

    A wart on the hand doesn’t indicate an STD. There are over 110 strains of HPV, of which around 23 are sexually transmitted. For the non-STD strains of HPV, which it sounds as though he has, there is little to worry about. Common warts are harmless. They usually go away on their own but may also be cut or frozen off easily. There is absolutely no reason to get his genitals checked out in response to a wart on his hand, besides as a part of regular STD screening which is something everyone sexually active should do. All strains of HPV, the STD transmitted kind and otherwise, are contagious, although I again want to reiterate are completely harmless for 99% of strains. Nearly every human being will be exposed to HPV in their lifetime. Many never develop a wart as their immune system naturally fights off the virus.

    As far as the sexually transmitted strains of HPV go, again they’re very common, and most strains do little to nothing. While there is no medical cure for HPV the immune system of healthy individuals usually fights off the virus. Within 2 years time 90% of those infected no longer show active infection. Only a very small percentage of those exposed to HPV develop cancers, usually those whose immune system is compromised for other reasons. While testing exists for HPV in women, no such test exists for men.

    Overall it sounds like there is no reason to be alarmed. And especially no reason to give the poor guy so much grief as to prompt him to have his genitals checked out for a non-STD issue.

    You do have HPV. But there are a lot of strains of HPV, and it doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll ever get genital warts. Most people have HPV (estimated somewhere between 60 and 80% percent of Americans), and very few ever have genital warts.

    Ovarian cancer is NOT caused by HPV. Let me repeat that. Ovarian cancer is NOT caused by HPV. Ovarian cancer is currently known to be caused by nothing (my mom died of it). Ovarian cancer cannot be caught by a PAP smear, either. A few strains of HPV can, however, cause cervical cancer, which is fairly easy to treat (and can be caught by a PAP). You should be getting a PAP smear yearly regardless.

    So your chances of getting ovarian cancer because of a wart on your finger? Right around zero.

    If you had warts than you have HPV, but this doesn’t mean you will get cervical cancer.
    The vaccine only prevents 4 strains of HPV (there are more than 70) provided you have not exposed to one or more before you received all three vaccines and judging from your name you probably have been.
    Nearly every sexually active person on the planet had been exposed to HPV it isn’t a big deal.

    EDIT: You can be sexually active and still be a virgin.

  63. Lily L :

    Whether it can become genital HPV depends on what you mean by genital HPV. HPV strains have their favorite places to live. Some strains like the hands, some the feet, some the genitals. One strain cannot change into another, to the hand warts strains isn’t going to change into a genital strain.

    On the other side, it’s unlikely, but it is possible for strains to cause warts anywhere. You can get a foot wart on your elbow or a face wart on your hand. So yes, if he touches your genitals with his hands it is possible for you to develop a hand wart on your genitals. But the warts types of HPV that cause warts do not cause cancer, so the worst that can happen is that you will get a wart.

    Tell your boyfriend to get those warts removed.

    The answer is actually YES. It is *possible.* It is unlikely, however.

    HPV strains have their favorite places to live. Some like that hands and feet. Some like the face. Some like the gentials. BUT it’s entirel possible to get a hand wart on you foot, a face wart on your elbow, or a hand wart on your genitals. Likely? No, but it CAN happen.

    It’s best to get warts removed to avoid spreading then around. Good luck!

    Genital warts are called genital warts because they appear on your genitals. You cannot spread them to your hands, just like you can’t spread one from your hand to your genitals. Warts are very common but the bumps you have probably aren’t even warts.

    This topic provides information about genital warts, which are caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV). If you are looking for information about cervical cell changes or cervical cancer caused by HPV, see the topics Abnormal Pap Test or Cervical Cancer.

    What are genital warts?
    Genital warts are skin growths in the groin, genital, or anal areas. They can be different sizes and shapes. Some look like flat white patches, and others are bumpy, like tiny bunches of cauliflower. Sometimes you can’t see the warts at all.

    Genital warts are spread by skin-to-skin contact. The virus is usually spread through sexual activity. Genital warts are a common sexually transmitted disease (STD).

    What causes genital warts?
    Genital warts are caused by the human papillomavirus, or HPV. Some types of HPV cause genital warts. But these are not the same types of HPV that cause abnormal cervical cell changes and cervical cancer.

    You are more likely to get genital warts if you:

    Do not use condoms every time you have sex or genital contact.
    Have more than one sex partner or have a high-risk partner(s) who has had multiple sex partners or HPV-infected sex partners.
    Start sexual activity before age 18.
    Have an impaired immune system that makes it hard for your body to fight infection.
    What are the symptoms?
    Most people infected with the virus that causes genital warts don’t have symptoms. But if they do, the symptoms may be so mild that they may not know they are infected. The symptoms may include pain, itching, and bleeding.

    If you have symptoms, they will probably occur 2 to 3 months after infection. But you can have symptoms from 3 weeks to many years after infection.

    Visible genital warts appear only during active infection. But it is possible to spread the virus even if you can’t see the warts.

    How are genital warts diagnosed?
    A doctor can often tell if you have genital warts by looking closely at your genital and anal areas. He or she may ask you questions about your symptoms and your risk factors. Risk factors are things that make you more likely to get a disease.

    Sometimes the doctor takes a sample of tissue from the wart for testing.

    How are they treated?
    Talk to your doctor about whether you should treat genital warts. They usually go away with no treatment, but they may also spread. Most people decide to treat them because of the symptoms or how the warts look. But if you don’t have symptoms and are not worried about how the warts look, you can wait and see if the warts go away.

    If you do decide to treat genital warts, talk to your doctor about the best treatment for you. There are prescription medicines you or your doctor can put on the warts. Or your doctor can remove them with lasers, surgery, or by freezing them off.

    Even if you treat visible warts or your warts go away without treatment, the HPV infection can stay in your body’s cells. It is possible to spread genital warts to your partner even if you have no signs of them.

    Finding out that you have genital warts may make you feel bad about yourself or about sex. Counseling or a support group may help you feel better.

    Can genital warts be prevented?
    The best way to keep from getting genital warts—or any other STD—is to not have sex. If you do have sex, practice safe sex.

    Before you start a sexual relationship, talk with your partner about STDs. Find out whether he or she is at risk for them. Remember that a person can be infected without knowing it.
    If you have symptoms of an STD, don’t have sex.
    Do not have sex with anyone who has symptoms or who may have been exposed to an STD.
    Do not have more than one sex partner at a time. Having several sex partners increases your risk for disease.
    Use condoms. Condoms may help reduce the risk of spreading genital warts, but they do not protect the entire genital area against skin-to-skin contact.
    A new vaccine called Gardasil protects against four types of HPV, which together cause most cases of cervical cancer and genital warts. You get three shots over 6 months. The vaccine is recommended for girls 11 to 12 years old. It is also recommended for females 13 to 26 years old who did not get it when they were younger.

    Do having warts mean you have HPV for sure?
    Also, I know warts go away after a while but does that mean they wont return in like five years or something. I was just wondering because I shook hands with an kid who had warts on his hand, I’m really worried.

    Genital warts are caused by the Human Papilloma Virus. These type of warts have to be cauterized and you have to monitor your genitals for recurrence. In your case, relax, you are NOT going to get warts(especially genital warts) just by shaking a kid who has warts on his hands(by the way, warts on the hands are not caused by HPV).

    If you have flat warts do u have HPV?
    I’m confused as hell right now. It started cuz I just wanted some warts gone so I did research and started learning that warts are from HPV. I have the flat warts on my face hands and one on my knee. I just want to know if I have HPV even though I have none in my genital area and have had no sexual contact at all. And If for some stupid reason the answer is yes how do I know if its the cancerous kind?

    Flat Warts are from a different strand of HPV as genital warts are from. You can have plantar warts, flat warts, etc, but not have the HPV STD that you are thinking of…it’ll be ok…just do a little more research or ask a dermatologist.

    What kind of HPV causes you to get warts on other parts of your body?
    What strains cause you to get warts on your hands and/or feet or any other part of your body at that?
    If you don’t know the answer then don’t be a dumb ass and post a response.

    Can common warts on my hands give a woman cervical cancer?
    As I understand it, all warts are HPV, so would this mean I will never be able to touch a woman again? Something from medical literature to back up what you are saying would be nice.
