Hpv Penile Warts
Genital warts: The hpv types that cause external visible warts (hpv types 6 and 11) rarely cause cancer. Other hpv types (most often types 16, 18, 31, 33 and 35) are less common in visible warts but are strongly associated with penile and vulvar intra-epithelial neoplasia (pre-cancerous changes) and squamous cell carcinoma (scc) of the genital area especially cervical cancer and less frequently invasive vulvar c. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
See below: Most cases of penile cancer are due to hpv 16, 18, 31, and 45. These are the same oncogenic (cancer-causing) strains that have been implicated in the development of cervical cancer, anal cancer, and squamous cell cancers of the mouth, head, and neck. Other strains have also been reported to cause cancer as well. ...Read more
My derm says that repeated cryo for penile warts is + likely to cause scarring and sensation loss than imiquimod. True? He says imiquimod doesn't harm healthy tissue. It harms whatever it touches, no?
Yes, but! : Yes Imiquimod could harm whatever tissue it touches, but for penile warts if you have a lot, you may get better results with the cream then with cryo. Cryo can cause scarring and does hurt a lot when applied. Plus with the cream you can do it on your own without having frequent returns to the doctors office for cryo. Try the cream first if that's what your doctor suggested! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I'm not sure if the tiny skin-colored bumps are on my penile shaft are skin-tags or HPV warts. Should i go to a dermatologist 1st? Or family physician
Do the strains of HPV that cause warts on feet and fingers are also the stains that cause penile/urethral/anal cancer? I have warts, am i at risk?
Can HPV that causes warts on genital area on man could also cause cancer as well or is it just warts? I have a red mark on penis and small white dots
Possibly: Penile cancers are strongly associated with hpv infection (meaning most men with penile cancer have hpv). It is important to note that most men with hpv do not, however, go on to develop penile cancer, and men with penile cancer are typically much older than 21 years of age. If you have concerns, please see your doc or visit a clinic and undergo a physical exam to learn exactly what you do have. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
If i apply Acv with mother in it to my penis and nothing turn white does that mean no genital warts? i don't have swollen lymph does that mean no hpv?
Useless test: I don't understand "Acv with mother". However, tests to whiten HPV infected tissues, e.g. with vinegar, are pretty much useless. Even experienced doctors have trouble understanding results. Whether or not you have enlarged lymph nodes means nothing; HPV doesn't cause abnormal nodes. If you think you might have penile warts, stop trying to self diagnose and see a doctor. ...Read more

Hi i'm 24 white and have noticed some bumps on my penis. Flesh colour like above the 4 skin . What is the best way i can tell if it HPV or warts ?
No,...: Are they new and increasing in size and number? If so, it is most likely warts. Note: the hpv-exposed men wouldn't always develop warts; if developed, it is usually in 2-3 months after exposure to hpv, almost always sex-related although very rare autoinnoculation from non-genital sites does exist. So, see doc timely. ...Read more
