Genital warts are one of the most common sexually transmitted diseases. They affect the moist tissues of the genital area, and are symptoms of infection with human papillomavirus (HPV). A steady increase in cases of this disease is observed in Poland, and the problem is becoming widespread.
Infection with HPV 6 and HPV 11 viruses, which are responsible for the appearance of warts, may not show any symptoms for many years. The virus is dormant until inflammation develops on the genitals (for example, due to mechanical damage). That’s when the symptoms appear – numerous small light pink or brown colour lumps. Fortunately, they are painless, but if left untreated, they grow more and more, forming a lumpy surface.
In men, they can cover a significant part of the penis, and they can also appear on the scrotum. In women, lumps most often develop inside the vagina, less often on the cervix and external genitalia. The rapid growth of the warts is observed mainly during pregnancy or when the person experiences hormonal changes caused by progesterone. They are not painful, but they can significantly hinder childbirth.
