Diagnosing and treating genital warts

Anal genital warts is a sexually transmitted disease caused by the human papilloma virus. Anal warts can be very itchy or cause bleeding on defecation. Anal warts are caused by a viral infection of your skin, and can be transmitted sexually. Anal warts appear to be most common in young men, especially those engaging in anal intercourse. People who have sexual contact with an infected partner will develop warts within three months of contact. Although most anal warts are related to sexual transmission, it is also possible for an infant to acquire the disease during vaginal delivery from an infected mother.

Anal warts rarely cause significant symptoms and are usually diagnosed on routine examination. Your health care professional can diagnose the genital warts by carefully examine the entire genital and anal area to look for warts. Anal warts treatment include freezing, burning, and laser removal. Surgery may also be used for warts that keep coming back, and warts that are in the anal canal and rectum.
