Often no symptoms...: Most men with hpv infection have no signs or symptoms. Hpv can infect the skin of the penis / scrotum / perianal areas and can cause warts, but many male patients who have hpv have no symptoms. Hpv can also cause dysplasia (precancer) and true cancer at these sites. In addition, hpv can infect the lips, oral cavity, tongue / tonsils and can cause warts, precancer, and cancer in these sites too.
