Genital Warts Hiv Positive
Hey i have genital warts the doctors told me that i might be HIV positive it's 99% of being positive ?
Not necessarily: In South Africa -- and especially among black South Africans -- having gential warts undoubtedly is a strong predictor of having HIV. (Not so in industrialized areas like Europe, North America, etc.) But even in SA, most people with warts do not have HIV.

Genital warts are warts with a raised, irregular, flesh colored appearance and can be found anywhere throughout the genital area. The medical term for them is condylomata accuminata and they are caused by certain subtypes of the human papilloma virus (HPV).

There are multiple treatments available and there is also ...Read more

That said folks with HIV are more prone to warts due to lowered immunity, and those with sexual practices which expose them to genital warts ( unprotected sex, unsafe sex, etc) exposé themselves to a greater chance to contract hiv.

HIV positive, biopsied lesion/bump on face shows Verruca Vulgaris. Is is possible the warts might turn to skin cancer?
Very unlikely: It is highly unlikely that a common wart (verruca vulgaris) on your face would potentially turn into a skin cancer. However the risk is not zero. A long-standing wart, untreated and chronically inflamed, can potentially turn into cancer. The type of cancer is most commonly squamous cell carcinoma. We do see this in some warts under the finger nail that convert over years (5 to 10 years). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
