HPV : Hpv is caused by a virus. I suggest that rather than them coming back, you have a recurrance. As dr fowler points out, there are many strains of virus and you could become infected with a new strain. When you have them removed, you only have the warts that are visual removed. Some warts are invisible even with a careful exam and colposcopy. I suggest that you discuss this situation with your physician, who may have information about the previous hpv that could help answer your questions. Best wishes.
