HPV (human papillomavirus) is a common virus that affects both men and women. Most types do not cause any symptoms and will go away on their own.
However, some types of HPV can cause diseases of the sex organs (genital area).
Genital skin that looks normal may be infected with HPV.
Sometimes your doctor will use a magnifying glass to identify small warts.
Because the virus can stay in the skin cells without symptoms, warts can return months or even years after treatment. Treatment often takes several visits, and your doctor may use different methods (topical solution or creams, freezing, laser therapy, or surgery).
Your doctor can talk with you about HPV infections and the best treatment for you.
They should also be aware that other risk factors for cervical cancer are first intercourse at an early age, smoking, and exposure to other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).
It’s important that a pregnant woman tell her doctor or midwife if she or her partner(s) have or ever have had HPV or genital warts.
