HPV / Genital Warts Viral STD
Human Papilloma Virus HPV is an incurable sexually transmitted disease (STD) that is generally detected by the emergence of flat red warts that occur on the vulva, vagina, cervix, urethra, anus, and in men, penis, scrotum, and/or anus. Even if you dont have the warts, you can
still have the virus and can give the Human Papilloma Virus to another person during all forms of unprotected sex.

The most dangerous aspect of HPV is that it can cause cervical cancer in women and it is currently being studied as a cause of colon cancer in both men and women. It is also suspected in causing prostate cancer in men. The delicate mucous lined areas of the body: anus, cervix, vagina, urethra and penis are especially vulnerable to cell changes that lead to cancer.
Since cancer is disease of the immune system, learn more about immunity from the

Since no one knows, definitively, if HPV is the cause of prostate cancer, it cannot be dismissed as a possible cause of prostate cancer. For decades cancer research has focused upon complex viruses as the cause of cell mutations and DNA damage in cells that cause cells to multiply out of control (cancer). Even if a person has a genetic predisposition toward a particular cancer, it takes a trigger (like a viral attack) to get the ball rolling for cancer to start.
Like many sexually transmitted diseases, HPV can have a delayed emergence of the warts, although on a cellular level, the person has definitely been infected and can easily, unknowingly, pass it on to others during unprotected sex. Remember:
A lack of warts is no proof that the person is free of HPV! Only a blood test can determine
You only have three choices when it comes to preventing contracting HPV:
- Abstain from all sexually activity with another person.
- Stay in a monogamous relationship with a partner that is free of HPV.
- Use a condom for all forms of intercourse, a non-lubricated condom for male oral sex, and a dental dam for female oral sex.
Recognize that the warts may be on skin that is not covered by the condom.
Once you have HPV, you have got it! Period!
The Centers for Disease Control estimates that about 3 million people have HPV and dont know it. Also, the numbers for cervical, colon/anal cancer and prostate cancer keep rising, year after year.
Other than the visible evidence of seeing flat, red or bumpy red warts on your genitals or surrounding tissues, there are a few other symptoms that sometimes drive people to find out whats wrong:
Never withhold the fact that you have had unprotected sex from your doctor. This is a very important detail!
- Blood in the toilet, or on toilet tissue, after defecating or urinating. The pressure can scrape internal warts and cause them to bleed slightly. Oftentimes, the person does not relate the symptoms to HPV sexually transmitted disease.
- Painful intercourse from the penis scraping on cervical warts, which are unseen, but nevertheless present.
- Unexplained bleeding between periods.
- A burning, or itching feel before a wart emerges. Sometimes the warts are painless and sometimes they are very painful and bleed easily.
