Tell partner: There are many different strains of hpv, most of which do not predispose to cervical or other cancers. Most people have been infected with this virus already. Inform your partner and they can decide what to do. Go and get the hpv vaccine.

Talk to Dr: Discuss treatment w/"std dr" or urologist, as vaccination and "burning"(/freezing) warts off can improve situation in many cases. Also to be sure of diagnosis and be sure no others hiding. If localized to shaft, condom use can be protective. Long-term relationship may just need to be w/person who also has them. Never lose hope.
