Several options: Treatment for condyloma must cause destruction of the lesions, so topical medications are used, as are lasers, cautery, excision and freezing.

Ask ur conscience: Perhaps the time is when you first consider having intimate contact and are ready to hand out condoms. For additional input, i will also refer this to our surgery and urology experts, obgynecologists, baby doctors and mouth and throat experts. They all see patients with condylomata.

With regard to how to tell someone, I suggest giving the facts. Condylomata are lesions that can be transmitted to anyone--sexually usually--many don't know when infected. They can grow in the genital region, anus, mouth/throat. Some types are associated with cancer. If someone wants to pursue a sexual relationship, condoms (male and female) might decrease the risk of transmission but no guarantee

My wife has condyloma but I don't have any I see so do I have it?

Probably: Since this virus is transmitted by touch, you more than likely have the viral infection but may not have the actual lesions. Years ago, we would colposcope the penis of men whose sexual partners had condyloma looking for the skin changes of the virus. Probably 60-70% chance that they are there.

Genital warts: Condyloma accuminata are genital warts or hpv. Certain types of hpv can be associated with cervical cancer so have you or your partner checked with a pap smear. Also, most genital warts i see in practice are around the base of the penis where condoms don't cover. Genital- oral (mouth to genital) transmission can also occur.

Depends on: location, but dermatologist can probably handle it, unless it is inside the urethra.
