Can Men Spread Hpv Through Fingernails
Yes it could: Hpv is the most common std in the world. In fact, classifying it as an std does not mean that it cannot be transmitted in other ways. For example, skin-to-skin contact could potentially spread the virus. While some hpv infections lead to cancers in both men and women, in most cases hpv will clear up on its own without causing any symptoms, side effects, or problems. Vaccination is recommended. ...Read more
Human Papillomavirus (HPV) is the most common sexually transmitted infection. There are over 100 different types of HPV that causes warts in different areas of the body. HPV is incredibly common and almost all sexually active men and women get it during their lifetime. Most of the time HPV does not cause any symptoms or complications. However, A limited number of these HPV viruses are pathogenic and if not monitored carefully can be responsible for causing cervical and penile cancer. Some of these viruses have been ...Read more
Can men be treated to get rid of of HPV like women do? How? What treatment should they go through? What needs to be done? Surgery?!
Can happen: The HPV virus has been known to be associated with the development of squamous cancer of the cervix. More recently, HPV has been shown to also be associated with oral squamous cancer. Since the virus is present under the foreskin of the penis and the vaginal area of the cervix, any means by which the virus can enter the oral cavity can induce the squamous cell lesion. Cunilingus is one method. ...Read more
When my gyno nurse informed me that I ha ve hpv, she told me I wouldn't be able to spread it to a partner through sexual relations. How is that?
HPV: You are right to wonder about this advice. But, I surely would need more information. What were your tests and what were their specific results? Where and how did they discover you have hpv? Do you know which strain you have? What treatments did they do or recommend? But, hpv is transmitted skin to skin and from infected body fluids. ...Read more
Yep: Possible but not probable. Would have to have almost immediate contact from an infected person. ...Read more
Can hpv be spread onto your actual butt cheeks, not just anus? If so can you spread it through the toilet, please please clarify.
Yes, but...: Nobody knows the degree of risk because there are too many unknowns, such as: does the other person have the virus, how much virus does she have, what exactly is oral sex for that couple, how many total minutes of exposure per episode, how many episodes, how much total virus gets into the guy's mouth, etc., etc... So, in life, if a person is a "worrier", he has to play it safe and not do stuff. ...Read more
Unlikely, but...: A 1997 study in the journal of infectious disease demonstrated that hpv-16 showed 100%, 50%, and 30% of infectivity when dehydrated on a surface for 1, 3, and 7 days, respectively, at room temperature. But the real-world transmissibility of genital hpv when present on fomites such as towels, underwear, or gloves is unknown. I would be conservative, and take precautions to avoid trasmission. ...Read more
Little or no risk: HPV is not spread through the air or in the environment, e.g. touching surfaces, in toilets, by towels, etc. Almost all cases are by sex, virgins not at risk. However, there is slight risk from some kinds of sex without penetration, especially oral sex; and maybe rare cases by hand-genital contact, fingiering, etc. Get vaccinated to prevent the 9 most common and most dangerous HPV types. ...Read more
If I have oral hpv and preform oral sex on a woman, could she possibly get hpv? In other words, can hpv be spread through saliva? Also, is there any possibility of spreading it (oral hpv) through kissing?
Oral HPV/ spread?: Any mucosal surface will be a potential source of both acquiring and spreading HPV: this includes oral areas, so "kissing" can cause spread, and genital areas in both men and women, though oral or sexual contact. HPV is very common, so multiple partners can easily acquire this and spread accordingly. ...Read more
Different strains: The hpv that causes warts on skin are a different strain than what causes hpv in the mouth. Like humans are made up of many different strains, with different skin, eye and hair color, different shapes. So you can have warts on your hands and hpv in your mouth, but they aren't likely spread from one to the other. ...Read more
How plausible is it for HPV to be spread through non-sexual or proxy contact (one not washing hands properly someone touching door handle after them)?
Not impossible but..: By far, genital hpv is more commonly and more easily transmitted via sex. Plus, certain strains have a higher affinity for certain types of skin cells. Infection requires contact between skin cells and live virus. The virus must attach to cell receptors and get into a cell. Direct contact, microtrauma to skin and high viral load all favor infection. Sex is better than door knobs for transmission. ...Read more
Cervical High Risk HPV caught early, but how do I know it hasn't spread through my vagina or elsewhere?
Germ behavior: There are hundreds of strains of HPV and each has carved out it's own favorite territory. Genital strains of HPV stay there. The wart strains like the outer tissue of the labia or penile shaft, while the strains associated with cervical cancer like that tissue. It does not enter your blood to go to other parts of the body. These are issues which you can discuss with your doc at your follow up visits ...Read more
Is there any form of HPV that can be spread through genes? My dad has recently been diagnosed with skin cancer in his neck that is called squimy cell (i know that probably isn't spelled right) cancer. His doctor tested him for HPV and he has it. Now he is
I accidently used a toilet paper that had small red dots that looked like blood. Can hiv, hpv or Hcv spread through this?
No risk, no worries: I find it difficult to believe you found toilet paper that really had blood on it. But if that happened, there would be little or no risk for any of these infections. Don't worry about it. ...Read more
If one gets high risk HPV orally can it be spread through saliva onto person in the sense of one drinking from the same glass as the infected perso?
Hye. Dose hpv genital wart spread through washing underwaer toghather with infected person with just cold water and soup?? Plz explain and why??
Here are some...: For viral particles to gain access to body surface, there should be a compatible surface with cells and environment for the virus to harbor and replicate. So, the circumstance your described should pose almost zero odd to contract the virus. If contracted, personal humoral immune defense will try to fend off such invasion. All in all, for average healthy person, one should be okay to survive... ...Read more
Can HPV be spread through indirect contact? For example, if my finger touches a genital wart and I lick my finger with my tongue, can I get mouth wart
No risk: This is one of at least 3 questions you have asked about HPV, all of them suggesting you are unnecessarily worried about catching it. You are at risk of HPV only by sex with infected partners. Nobody can say the risk is zero with this sort of contact, but it is far too low to worry about. If you are sexually active, even with only one partner, that's how you'll get HPV someday. No other way. ...Read more
Are there tests to diagnose HPV for men? My girlfriend told me she has hpv. I don't have any symptoms, but am worried I might get it. How can I find out if I have hpv? .
There: There isn't a standardized screening/ blood test for men. ...Read more
No.: Sperm are created in the testicles and travel through the vas deferens (a tube) to ultimately exit the body at the end of the penis. The human papillomavirus does not impact sperm production or transport. It might be possible for a wart or a tumor (potentially caused by hpv) to impede ejaculation at the distal penis, thereby impeding the exit of sperm, but the sperm themselves would be the same. ...Read more
The vaccine, YES!: The hpv vaccine, or gardasil, is best known for its prevention of cervical cancers and cervical dysplasias. The hpv vaccine also protects against anal and rectal cancers, and is showing some promise in protection against esophageal and throat cancers that may be hpv related. It also offers protection against genital warts. So yes, get vaccinated! ...Read more
Not as dangerous..:
It is not as dangerous form men as it is for women. In men, it typically causes venereal
warts. In women, certain strains of hpv can cause cervical cancer. Certain strains might
be related to penile cancers. Best is to avid unprotected sexual relations and if you have
a lesion that doesn’t belong…get it checked out. ...Read more
Several reasons: There's little incentive for companies to make tests for men. Unlike women, in men HPV lesions (warts etc) usually are easy to see and diagnose, so lab test isn't needed. There is no point in testing men without lesions; up to half age 18-25 would be positive, with no treatment. Most such infections never cause disease and testing would not help prevention. Instead of testing, rely on vaccination! ...Read more
It can cause a few: HPV is most known for cervical cancer in women, but obviously this is not an issue. It is becoming well established that it is a major cause of cancer of the head and neck, particularly squamous cell cancer of the oropharynx. The other cancer it causes that is becoming much more common is anal cancer. It can also cause penile cancer, but is less commonly seen in this setting. ...Read more

Several options...: Hpv therapy falls into two general categories. The first is direct destruction of visible lesions using either cryosurgery (freezing), mild acids, podophyllum, electrosurgery ("cauterization") or laser. The second is prescription topical medications used to destroy the lesions and/or eliminate the virus. These include Aldara (imiquimod) cream, veregan ointment and condylox (podofilox) gel. ...Read more
