can genital warts go away in their own before theyre even noticed, making it possible for someone not to even know if they had them?

Yes and No: Yes, it is possible for warts to be present and not noticed by someone (usually male) who pays little attention to their body and well being. No, most people notice abnormal growths in "personal spaces" and seek to find out what they are through medical care.

Sure: Many types of warts sometimes do that. Wart viruses infect surface cells, and transform them into wart-like growths. If one's body recognizes the wart cells as foreign, and one's immune system goes after the wart cells to get rid of them, then one's body may successfully remove a wart... and the patient may not know it happened.
