The warts are small papillomatous lesions in the genital and perianal area. They are due to HPV virus and transmitted through sexual contact. It is the most common sexually transmitted disease and affects women and men equally. They are usually asymptomatic and rarely can cause itching (itching) or burning sensation. The areas where they occur are the penis, scrotum, groin and perineum for men, and for women the vagina, vulva, cervix and groin and perineum. Less commonly they occur on the lips, larynx, hands and mouth.
Warts appear as small tumours that look like small tumours mole, i.e. follicular formations in the area of the penis, cervix, vagina, vulva, anus, rectum, etc. They may be internal or external. They vary in size, and can range from the size of the head of a pin up to 12 cm in size in the case of giant acicular warts. In the early stages you may feel itching ή burning sensation, and at the next stage up to bleeding from the skin lesions. Usually pain is not observed. Warts can extend to the vagina, urethra and inside the anus. They can be harmless but can also lead to dangerous skin cancers. That is why whenever a new mole or change in skin complexion appears in the genital area, it is imperative to see and be examined by a dermatologist.
