Genital warts are a type of skin lesion caused by sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). Although invisible, they are transmitted through contact, during sexual intercourse.
The human papilloma virus (HPV) causes warts in the genital area in men. HPV can also cause cervical cancer. If you are sexually active, you may encounter this virus at some point in your life. Some are too small to be seen with the naked eye.
There are about 40 subtypes of HPV, only a few of which cause warts. If you are infected in this way, you may not show any symptoms and therefore you can infect your partner without realizing it.
An important point you should pay attention to is to prevent the transmission of genital warts. Since it can be transmitted by contact, protection during sexual intercourse is not enough. Getting the HPV vaccine can help prevent these infections.
The question of "what happens if genital warts is left untreated" is wondered a lot. This may vary depending on the type of virus that causes the wart. For example, genital warts caused by the herpes simplex virus type 2 can often become chronic and do not disappear on their own.
Therefore, it is essential to seek treatment for genital warts. Dr. Yaşar Başağa provides innovative and high-quality treatments on all aspects of male sexuality in his clinic in Istanbul.
The symptoms of warts in the genital area vary and can change from person to person. Some genital warts may be asymptomatic or have very mild indicators. They have a pin-sized blister structure, and when they come together, they form like a cauliflower.
The diagnosis of genital warts is usually made by examination. Your doctor checks your related area and evaluates the appearance of the cells. Also, a sample from here can be examined for laboratory tests. These tests include cytological tests such as HPV test or the PAP Smear.
However, since many warts can be identified visually, testing may not be necessary. However, HPV testing can be done to determine the HPV type caused by wart formation, which is important for your treatment and follow-up.
Also, if your wart formation is widespread or recurring, your doctor may recommend other tests or refer you to another specialist.
The treatment of genital warts may vary depending on the type of virus causing the condition. There is no known specific solution for HPV, but the discomforts caused by warts can be treated in different ways. Some of the methods used to solve this problem are:
In this way, it is possible to destroy the wart cells. This treatment usually takes a few minutes and is usually completed within a few sessions. There may be a slight pain or burning sensation during electrocauterization. This method is considered a surgical treatment and is usually performed with local anesthesia.
Cryotherapy (cold therapy) is another method used in the treatment of genital warts. This application is performed with the use of liquid nitrogen. It cools your wart cells, killing them or reducing their production. This causes them to shrink or disappear altogether.
Cryotherapy is applied by a specialist and usually requires several sessions to complete. During treatment, your doctor sprays cold air on the wart with a nitrogen device. After the operation, there may be side effects such as redness, swelling or crusting in the wart area.
Cryotherapy is usually painless or causes minimal pain. Since it is an operation that does not require surgery, you usually recover in a short time. As mentioned above, some symptoms that occur in the area after the treatment usually pass in a short time. After the procedure, your doctor will do follow-up checks for the wart and may recommend additional treatment if necessary.
Cryotherapy is only suitable for warts of a certain size and area. For larger or deep ones, surgical treatment may be more appropriate. Also, in some cases it may not completely eliminate HPV-infected cells, so there is a risk of recurrence.
