Human Papillomavirus Symptoms and Treatment

Human Papillomavirus Symptoms

Human Papillomavirus (HPV) has recently been reported with increased number of infections. During the last 30 years of my practice, I have seen and treated many patients with genital warts; recently I have been seeing more patients, especially youngsters, who come in for treatment of genital warts caused by human papillomavirus (HPV). While the infection with HPV mainly causes warts in the anogenital region as the HPV symtoms, more serious infections with “dangerous” strains of HPV may lead to cancer.

HPV Protection

  • Stay in a faithful relation with known infection free partner
  • Condoms may decrease the chance of transmission (no absolute protection is guaranteed!)
  • Vaccines: HPV vaccines are recommended for boys and girls ages 11 or 12 years (please always consult with your specialist first)
