Can I get HPV warts on anus even tho I'm always the top and never receive anal sex?

Can I get HPV warts on anus even tho I'm always the top and never receive anal sex?

Yes indeed: As your question implies (and you seem to know), anal warts are most common in people who have had anal sexual exposure. But they're not rare in sexually active persons who have never had anal sexual exposure, including both women and strictly heterosexual men. It probably happens because HPV spreads along the skin from the genital area, or by finger contact after touching the genital area. ...Read more

Does oral and anal sex really cause head/neck cancer as well as anal cancer? Are there risks involved if both parties are HPV free and monagomous?

Does oral and anal sex really cause head/neck cancer as well as anal cancer? Are there risks involved if both parties are HPV free and monagomous?

Yes: Anal cancer and some types of head/neck cancer (mainly tonsil) are caused by hpv. If both parties are hpv free and monogamous then the risk would likely decrease, however studies of cervical samples in female college students show a very high rate of exposure at some point. So, monogamy at present wouldn't necessarily mean that there hadn't been prior exposure. ...Read more

Im scared i think I have an HPV virus i had anal sex two years ago 12 times same person, but i also think the bumps I have are ingrown hairs, not warts?

HPV vs folliculitis: Ingrown hairs should have some fluid, pus or material inside the little bumps. Bumps should all be about the same size and centered on a hair. Shaving is a common cause. Warts are different. They have a velvety surface and come in different sizes and shapes. They are solid - there is nothing inside them. ...Read more
