    What are Genital Warts (HPV)?

    Genital warts are a viral disease that occurs in the genital area or rectum as a result of infection with the human papillomavirus, called HPV. As known, it is transmitted mainly sexually, occurs in both men and women. Studies have found that 60 percent of adult women and men experience HPV and genital warts over in a some particular period of time.

    The HPV virus enters the cell through skin-to-skin contact. Initially, genital warts may not form during a period called the incubation phase. Over time, skin symptoms such as moles, pimples or bumps similar to cauliflower appear from time to time.

    Usually, these symptoms can be experienced due to a weakening of the immune system. Lesions may occur that extend not only to the skin, but also to mucous membranes.

    Genital warts that appear as a symptom of the HPV virus should be treated as soon as possible because they can cause cervical cancer in women and rectal cancer in men. Patients who are shy and hesitant to go to the doctor to examine areas where symptoms are present can allow the virus to spread and infect others.

    Early diagnosis and treatment is primarily needed to determine the type of HPV virus in a person and to understand the risks. There are over 200 types of HPV, 40 of which carry cancer risk. For this reason, for successful treatment, it is important to see a specialist doctor without wasting time when symptoms of genital warts are found.

    How are Genital Warts (Condyloma) Spread? / Why do Genital Warts Occur?

    Transmission of the human papillomavirus occurs during sexual intercourse, as a result of contact of the genital area or the surface of the anal area of ​​one person with the affected skin surface – the mucous membrane of his partner. This type of virus travels through tears or fissures in the skin upon contact with the skin and causes lesions in these areas called warts. These lesions, which we call genital warts, can be visible or invisible. Although some people with HPV virus do not have any signs of genital warts, they can pass the virus on to someone else during the incubation period. For this reason, this disease, which manifests itself as a person-to-person transmission, should be treated as soon as possible. Otherwise, the spread of warts may increase as a result of infection

    Genital warts, which are usually spread by skin-to-skin contact during intercourse, can also be spread through public areas, but rarely. For example, it can be contracted in high traffic areas, such as public toilets, a gym, a hammam, or a sauna. There is a risk of transmission of the HPV virus by reusing personal items, such as a towel previously used by a person with a genital wart, if a healthy person uses it to wipe the genital area.

    The disease of genital warts, which is transmitted by a person infected with the HPV virus to another person, results from several types of HPV. Not every HPV-infected person will have genital warts or condylomas.

    Who Gets Genital Warts?

    The HPV virus can be transmitted to everyone, without distinction between men and women, it can be in the human body, even if it does not manifest itself externally and does not cause damage. The occurrence of genital warts is a situation associated with the human immune system. As a result of a weakened immune system, genital warts may develop over time. The period of time over which warts may appear for each person is different. Warts in the genital area or in the buttocks can appear over different periods of time, for example, 1 month after infection with the virus, and sometimes even a year later.

    Risk factors for contracting genital warts can be listed as follows:

    • Sexual relationships beginning in early adolescence,
    • Having more than one sexual partner,
    • Sexual intercourse without the use of any methods of protection,
    • Having a sexually transmitted disease other than genital warts,
    • Presence of diseases affecting the immune system or for this reason
    • Receiving courses of treatment, such as chemotherapy,
    • Weakened immune system.

    In Which Areas are Genital Warts Visible?

    Among women:

    • In the vagina or inside the vagina,
    • In the cervix,
    • In the area of ​​the vulva (external genital organs),
    • In the groin area,
    • In the perianal region (in and around the anus)

    In men:

    • The penis and its surroundings,
    • In the area of ​​the testicles,
    • In the groin and legs,
    • In and around the anus.

    Symptoms of Genital Warts

    A genital wart causes inflammation where it is present. This causes discoloration at the site of occurrence, itching, and in some cases a slight burning sensation and redness on the skin at the site where it occurs. Warts can be seen one at a time or in clusters, towering above the surface of the skin and resembling a cauliflower flower in appearance. These lesions, which have a serrated-protruding structure, may be white, brown, or gray in color. In some cases, it can also cause bleeding during intercourse. At the same time, it can cause vaginal discharge in women if it is in the vagina.

    How does a HPV Test Performed? How are Genital Warts Diagnosed?

    Genital warts have a  very typical appereance. For this reason, it can be detected during a physycal examination by a specialist urologist, gynecologist or proctologist. To determine the type of HPV, which is more than one, some tests are performed. HPV risk types are determined using diagnostic methods such as DNA test, HPV test and Pap (cytological) smears. In our center, the HPV type is determined by sending a sample of wart tissue taken during treatment to the genotyping laboratory. Thus, it is possible to understand whether a person has a dangerous type of HPV that can cause cervical cancer in women and penile and rectal cancer in men.


    HPV Types

    Not all types of HPV cause genital warts. Genital warts are caused by nearly 40 HPV types, with a total amount of more than 200. HPV 6 and HPV 11 are known to cause warts and are the most common types of HPV that carry no risk of cancer.

    Depending on the risk of cancer, HPV types are divided into low and high risk groups.

    Low-risk HPV types: 6,11,40,42,43,44,54,61,70,72,81

    High-risk HPV types: 16,18,31,33,35,39,45,51,52,56,58,59,68,73,82

    Is There a Vaccine For HPV?

    More than half of people with cervical cancer live in low- and middle-income countries. With the number of cases of cervical cancer reaching 600,000 worldwide, the World Health Organization (WHO) has raised awareness of the issue and found that HPV vaccination is important in reducing the risk of cervical cancer

    The most important thing to know about the HPV vaccine is that the vaccine must be given before the disease is transmitted. The HPV vaccine, especially at 12-13 years of age, provides more protection than later age. When this is done between the ages of 17 and 45, the degree of effect is low. However, it is recommended that people who do not show any symptoms be vaccinated to prevent the disease.

    Ways to Prevent Genital HPV Warts

    Vaccination at an early age provides protection against HPV types, especially those at risk of causing cancer. Childhood prophylactic vaccines protect against high-risk strains such as HPV 16 and 18. At the same time, the tetravalent vaccine provides protection against types 6 and 11 of genital warts. Of course, as stated earlier, a healthy person must get these vaccines before contracting the virus.

    In addition, genital warts that cannot be cured on their own must be cured and removed as soon as possible.

    Since there is sexual transmission, it is also important to use personal protective equipment (condoms) during intercourse. However, you should be aware that HPV can be transmitted to a healthy person through infected skin areas outside the condom. For the transmission of HPV, not only sexual intercourse is sufficient, but also contact with the skin through friction.

    To protect oneself from the HPV virus, a person’s immune system must also be strong. Carriers of the virus show signs of genital warts when their immune systems are weakening. Both before and after treatment, the immune system should be protected and tried to maintain its strength. It has been observed that people with strong immune systems are more likely to respond to treatment for genital warts.

    To keep the immune system strong, attention should be paid to nutrition. It is necessary to give up ready-made meals and eat more vegetables and fruits. Habits such as alcohol and smoking should be avoided and at least 2 liters of water per day should be consumed. In addition to nutrition, regular exercise is also important for the immune system. Vitamins such as vitamin C, zinc, B12, folic acid should be consumed in accordance with their level in the body. You should be aware that factors such as stress, insomnia and fatigue negatively affect the immune system.


    What to Consider After Treating Genital Warts?

    The most important issue to consider is not to have sexual intercourse with a partner who has genital warts at the time. After treatment, there is no protection against the disease itself, treatment occurs only for the symptoms of the disease and control of its spread. The HPV virus can be contracted again through close contact with a person with HPV.

    Genital warts are a contagious infectious disease. Even if the person has gotten rid of the warts, they can reappear if the cleaned area comes in contact with another person with the warts. For this reason, the treatment of both partners is recommended in our center. Since treatment is not enough for one partner, treatment should be applied to both. At the same time, a person’s immune system must be strong to fight the virus.

    Genital Warts Treatment

    Genital warts can be treated with several methods. Some of these treatments are:

    • Classic Surgical method,
    • Cryotherapy (treatment with cold, freezing),
    • Laser therapy (heating, evaporation).

    The classical surgical method is a method of treatment in which anesthesia is applied, hospitalization is required and subsequently can leave scars in areas with genital warts after treatment. For these reasons, patients are now turning to other alternative methods

    An important point in the treatment of genital warts is the ability to approach the root of the lesion and completely remove the infected tissue. For this reason, it should be performed under the supervision of a physician, in bright light and in a sterile environment such as an operating room. In terms of the ability to see and approach the roots of even the smallest lesions, the advantages of laser treatment.

    With cryotherapy, that is, with the freezing method, a certain amount of nitrogen gas is applied to the wart area at each session. In some cases, this gas spray applied to the wart only affects the top layer. Therefore, in this method it is not completely clear whether cryotherapy reaches the root tissue of the wart or not. Consequently, the number of sessions being conducted becomes larger.

    Advantages such as complete removal of genital warts and no damage to healthy tissue around them are possible when choosing laser treatment for genital warts. In this way, you can get rid of genital warts in a short time.

    In all methods of treatment should be aware that these methods provide elimination of HPV symptoms in the body, which are genital warts or warts of the rectal area. The papilloma virus remains in the body and the body continues to be the carrier of the virus. To get rid of the virus completely, it is recommended to keep the immune system strong.

    Techniques Applied in Non-Surgical Genital Wart Treatment

    • Surgery Method
    • Cryotherapy (Freezing) Method
    • Treatment with Laser Method
