Yes: One can get anal warts. If what one sees are truly warts, they are usually caused by a virus which is sexually transmitted. The presence of anal warts may also be associated w/ other underlying infections. To get them out, one needs to see a doctor (ex: dermatologist, infectious disease doc, family practice, colorectal surgeon).

Yes: They are called condyloma accuminata and may/are related to hpv infection. You need to get a thorough exam, confirm diagnosis, and get treatment with either topical meds or surgery. Also if you have active condyloam you can transmit to sexual partners.
