Genital Warts 101: Treatment in NYC

Genital warts are a common sexually transmitted infection (STI) caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV). They can appear on the genital area, anus, and throat, and are highly contagious. While genital warts are usually not dangerous, they can cause discomfort and embarrassment, and may increase the risk of certain cancers.

Symptoms of Genital Warts

Genital warts are usually small, flesh-colored or gray bumps that appear in clusters. They may be raised or flat, and can be smooth or rough to the touch. Some people with genital warts experience itching, burning, or bleeding. In some cases, genital warts may be too small to see with the naked eye.

Causes of Genital Warts

Genital warts are caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV), a group of over 150 related viruses that can be transmitted through sexual contact. HPV is very common, and most sexually active people will contract it at some point in their lives. Some types of HPV can cause genital warts, while others can cause cancer of the cervix, anus, or throat.

Treatment Options for Genital Warts

There is no cure for HPV, but there are several treatment options available for genital warts. At Nao Medical, we offer the following treatments:

  • Topical Medications: Prescription creams or gels that can be applied to the affected area to help remove warts over time.
  • Cryotherapy: A freezing technique that uses liquid nitrogen to freeze and destroy warts.
  • Electrocautery: A procedure that uses heat to burn off warts.
  • Excision: A surgical procedure that involves cutting out warts under local anesthesia.

Your healthcare provider at Nao Medical will help you determine the best treatment option for you based on the size and location of your warts, as well as your overall health and medical history.

Preventing Genital Warts

The best way to prevent genital warts is to practice safe sex. This includes using condoms and dental dams during sexual activity, getting vaccinated against HPV, and getting regular STI screenings. If you do develop genital warts, it is important to abstain from sexual activity until they are fully treated to prevent spreading the infection to others.
