CAUSES OF GENITAL WARTS
Genital wart is a sexually transmitted condition. It is caused due to the spread of the Human Papilloma Virus. Human Papillomavirus is spread through oral, vaginal or anal sex with a person who is a carrier of this virus. Human Papilloma Virus has almost 40 strains but only a few have the potential to cause genital warts. Human Papilloma Virus is highly contagious and readily spread through skin-to-skin contact. That’s why it gets easily transmitted through any type of sex. Due to the high occurrence of this virus in the population, CDC has acknowledged that most of the sexually active people get this virus at least once in their lifetime. Most of the time, the virus is kept under control by the body’s immune system and does not pose any risk of health. However, the virus may grow opportunistically, in case of a weakened immune system or in any infection and may cause genital warts.
SYMPTOMS OF GENITAL WARTS
Both male and female are affected by genital warts, and the symptoms of the condition depend upon the site of occurrence. In the female, a common site of occurrence is vagina, vulva, and cervix. The common site of wart appearance in the male is scrotum, penis, and urethra. Sometimes, warts may register their presence on the area surrounding anus or inside the anus and can also found on the thighs. The size of warts may either be very small or large. They may occur in the form of small bumps or may be large like cauliflower. If there is an abnormal flow of urine, this may indicate the presence of wart in the urethra. The patient may have bleeding during intercourse. Genital warts may also cause itching in the genital area. Although most of the people have asymptomatic warts, some people have increased discomfort due to them.
DIAGNOSIS OF GENITAL WARTS
Diagnosis is primarily done through the physical examination of genital warts. The characteristic appearance of genital warts helps the physician in identifying the condition. Various other growths such as papules and moles also look like genital warts and there might be a risk of misdiagnosis. Thus, the patient should go to experienced sexologist who is an expert in diagnosing and treating genital warts. Dr. Manu Rajput and Dr. Kanu Rajput of Sidri International are expert in the accurate diagnose of genital warts. At Sidri International, the doctors would listen to your problem patiently and accurately diagnose the disease. Further, the diagnosis of genital warts also involved asking of questions about health history and sexual life. Your doctor may ask you about any recent sexual intercourse without the use of protective devices such as condoms.
In the case of women, the diagnosis goes a step ahead. As warts may also occur inside the female reproductive system, doctors may perform a pelvic examination to look for the presence of warts. An acidic solution is applied to the pelvic region that increases the visibility of warts if present. Pap smear test may also be conducted to conclude the presence of HPV infection. In the Pap smear test, cells of the cervix are obtained with the help of swab and evaluated under a microscope to confirm the presence of HPV.
