Different warts: There are many different types of wart viruses - and each of them has their preferred living areas. Genital warts are caused by special wart viruses that attack that area - so I don't think you need to be seriously alarmed about what happened here. If you see a dermatologist, you can get rid of that common wart that's troubling you. There are good treatments out there for all kinds of warts.
My biopsy results were abnormal. The dr said i had condyloma. Does this mean I have low risk hpv? What is the treatment? And will i get genital warts?
Not necessarily: If you are referring to a cervical biopsy, you have cervical hpv. Most condyloma are low risk hpv, but it is possible to be high risk type. Mild dysplasia requires no treatment. 80% of this will clear spontaneously. Generally cervical hpv does not cause external or vulvar warts/condyloma.See 1 more doctor answer
Yes: Genital warts - caused by hpv virus - are common, but not dangerous. Symptoms include itching and bleeding they are contagious - and should be treated. Treatment depends on how many warts are present - a few can be coagulated or frozen in a doctor's office. A lot often requires a trip to the operating room. They all can be treated and removed.

HPV is common: 70 - 80 % of young women in the U.S. Have or have had hpv. There are several types, some can cause cervical cancer, some cause almost no trouble at all, and some cause warts. Warts are primarily cosmetic, although they can be transmitted sexually. Reducing the bulk of the warts can be done with chemicals or other means of cautery. Your immune system is ultimately going to get rid of the hpv.See 1 more doctor answer
No limit: Genital warts usually by definition are caused by genital contact -- which should not be occurring in children/pediatrics. Your name is "mommy" so i interpret this to be female: if there is abuse, this needs to be reported, the patient removed from the circumstance, and then treated. Surgery, laser therapy, liquid nitrogen, podophyllin, etc are all possible methods of treatment.
No: HPV, the virus that causes genital warts, is found in semen and vaginal secretions, and is not transmitted by saliva. It is possible, although rare, for HPV to be spread through oral sex (cunnilingus or fellatio). The virus does not survive generally in oral fluids and the chances of transmission through smoking the same cigarette as someone with HPV would be highly unlikely.See 1 more doctor answer
No: Despite condom use the viruses that cause genital warts can still be spread. In females, pap smears test for most of the harmful viruses. In msm (men who have sex with men), "anal pap smears" can be done. Hpv, which is a vaccine, can help protect a person from contracting the most common viruses that give rise to genital warts and cervical cancer. Both males and females can get this vaccine.See 2 more doctor answers
Usually go away: 80% of women with genital warts will have spontaneous resolution with-in 12 months. However, treatment with one of the current immune system modulating medications specifically intended for genital warts can decrease that time to a few weeks or a couple months for most women. Genital warts are not usually painful, but if the warts are painful, treatment for a quicker resolution is warranted.See 1 more doctor answer
