Genital Warts Guide: Causes, Symptoms and Treatment Options
Genital warts can be external, on the outside areas of your reproductive organs, or they can appear internally where you cannot see them. Internal warts can develop on the cervix, urethra, anus or inside the vagina, according to the New Zealand Dermatological Society's information resource Dermnet NZ 2. All genital warts are caused by strains of HPV, or human papilloma virus. Removing internal warts does not eradicate the virus from your body, but simply eliminates the protrusions. Topical solutions in the form of creams, acids or other liquid chemicals can be used in some cases to treat internal warts. Due to the hard-to-reach locations in which the growths are found, most of these solutions must be applied by a medical care provider rather than self-administration. One cream-based treatment called Imiquimod may be self-applied, and is more effective in treating female internal warts that those in males.

Receiving a diagnosis of genital warts can be distressing, and no doubt you will have a lot of questions you want to ask. However, for most people the virus that causes warts is completely eliminated from your body within years, so while it is daunting to get a diagnosis, the prospects are good, and there are lots of ways to remove the warts when they appear. First things first though — what even is a genital wart? Genital warts are small single or multiple bumps or growths on the skin, varying in size, colour, and shape. They can occur in the vulva, perineum, anal area, vagina, cervix, and urethra.
Genital warts appear as growths or bumps that are flesh-colored or whitish. They may be small or large, raised or flat, and appear singly or in groups. While genital warts generally do not cause such symptoms as itching or pain, many people find them embarrassing, and they can be spread from person to person. But not all strains of HPV cause genital warts. Some cause common skin warts, and some can cause cellular changes that can lead to cancer of the cervix , vagina , vulva, anus, penis, and oropharynx — the area at the back of the throat that includes the base of the tongue and tonsils.
