Different strains


Over 120 different types of HPV. Different types infect different parts of body. Most are harmless, easily treatable and not precancerous. Some produce warts that are easily seen and others growths that are nearly invisible. The ones on your hands, feet and other locations are just a different strain of the HPV. Strains 16 and 18 cause cervical and oral cancers.
