HPV and Genital Warts

 

There are more than 100 types of Human Papilloma Virus (HPV), 30 of which can affect the genital area. Genital HPV infections are spread during sexual intercourse and skin-to-skin contact of the genital areas. The infections are common and highly contagious and can cause:

  • Genital Warts - Symptoms can take over a year to appear. Treatment for genital warts can range from creams/liquids to liquid nitrogen, laser curetting and surgical excision. There is no cure, but it is possible for your body to clear the virus over time.

 

  • Abnormal Tissue Growth - can sometimes lead to cervical cancer. Girls aged 12 to 13 are offered a vaccination against HPV to help protect them against types of HPV that can cause cervical cancer.

 

HPV can also cause anal, penis or mouth cancer in men.

 

If you suspect you have  HPV, genital warts or any other STI/STD, book an appointment to speak confidentially to one of our GP's online here or call 020 7499 1581.
