In men, genital warts can appear on the penis, including under the foreskin if the man is uncircumcised and on the shaft of a circumcised penis.They can appear on the scrotum, testicles, anus, groin and thighs.Do not rely on the presence or absence of warts to determine whether you or someone else has HPV.Again, it is best to talk to your doctor and get tested to see whether or not you have HPV.You may still pass it along even though you are wart-free.Treatments include creams or gels that you apply yourself.

Immunological control is HPV type-specific, meaning an individual may become resistant to one HPV type while remaining susceptible to other types.

HPV infection of the skin in the genital area is the most common sexually transmitted infection worldwide.

Such infections are associated with genital or anal warts (medically known as condylomata acuminata or venereal warts), and these warts are the most easily recognized sign of genital HPV infection.

In one study, infection by HPV types 2, 27, and 57 was found in people with warts, while infection by HPV types 1, 2, 63, and 27 was found in people with clinically normal skin.

Genital warts are quite contagious, while common, flat, and plantar warts are much less likely to spread from person to person.Moreover, people may transmit the virus to others even if they do not display overt symptoms of infection.
