What are symptoms of HPV in women and men?

Many have no Sx: Hpv can pass from one to another with no symptoms at all. Some strains will persist in the body for decades & only be recognized when cell changes on a pap smear suggest precancerous growth. Some strains will produce skin bumps that can grow into wart like growths on the genitals (male or female) & spread over time.

If external forms are acquired, lesions vary early from small pimple like bumps to large wart like clusters of material that both thicken & spread. You may have an exceedingly foul smelling discharge.

Does HPV cause genital discharge? If not, what are its symptoms then for female? How do I know that an infection is happening (CIN) other than Pap test

HPV is not: Directly associated with vaginal discharge, but is associated with chronic cervical inflammation, cervical cancer and Sexually Transmitted Infections/STI. May times HPV positive women have NO symptoms - which is why it is so important to get SCREENED in your 20's. The only way to diagnose an active INFECTION is with clinical exam and CULTURES. See your GYN provider.

What does HPV look like on women?

What does HPV look like on women?

Depends: The few strains that produce genital warts can be seen when active. These can be tiny bubble-like outgrowths that eventually look like small cauliflowers. Most strains produce no findings that would be obvious to a lay person, while they actively shed virus.Even when the wart strains clear, they can shed virus and pass it to their sexual contacts off and on for years.

How do hpv oral symptoms look like in men?

Warts, cancer (rare): Oral HPV usually causes no symptoms at all. Rarely warts inside the mouth; more rarely, cancer of the throat. The vast majority of oral HPV causes neither problem and clears up on its own. But warts and maybe cancer are more common in people with immune deficiency, especially due to HIV (maybe on your mind, since you're in Uganda?). If you think you have oral warts, HIV testing is necessary.

Why does HPV go away in most men than women?

Why does HPV go away in most men than women?

Two issues: First, am not sure that your assumption that hpv clears more readily in men than women is necessarily correct, but assuming for the sake of argument that it is, it may be related to hormonal influences, and to the fact that detection in women may require invasive examination.

Can you tell me is oral HPV common in women?

Can you tell me is oral HPV common in women?

HPV in Women: 96% of americans are exposed to at least one of the hpv strains by the time they are 26. The bigger story in women is that this problem manifests first in their cervix. Oral hpv is real. But, there is no test or treatment yet. But, we can follow this in the pap smears. All humans, regardless of their age or gender or exposure history should have the hpv vaccination.

Can a woman give a man hpv? How serious is it?

Yes: Men and women pass hpv back and forth. Typically for men it's not serious (they don't test for it in men). The more partners one has, the increased risk for cancers of the penis and the cervix (though penile cancer is very rare). The biggest threat from hpv is to the woman. Always use condoms and that will help prevent the transmission, not 100%, but significantly. Pap smears help detect hpv.
