Hopefully vaccinated: Because the vaccine Gardasil-9 is preventive medicine against HPV strains 6 and 11 (those strains cause most of people's genital warts), and blocks infection from seven cancer-causing strains, and all young people should have already been vaccinated in the last ten years, a young adult man in this situation is hopefully vaccinated and presumed pretty safe. Otherwise, can consider vaccinating now.
