I am told that genital warts can appear on one's thighs? What other parts of an HPV positive person's body can spread it?

HPV is incredibly common and almost all sexually active men and women get it during their lifetime. Most of the time HPV does not cause any symptoms or complications.

How common are oral warts from genital hpv? Can you get them when you share a cup with someone who has oral warts or am i just paranoid?
HPV and Oral Cancer: While the number of people with oral hpv infection has increased, the transmission is still considered to be sexual. Sharing a cup with someone with known oral hpv (which is not easily detected unless they have hpv + oral cancer) does not seem to be a risk factor. Smoking, having multiple past sexual partners (or a partner who does) and known genital hpv infection increases the risk for oral hpv. ...Read more

I had a bump on inner left thigh lasered off today, doctor seemed hesitant to call it a wart, normal pap test, no hpv, what else could it have been?
No stds, possible hpv warts/skintags inner thigh. Got handjob from masseuse, not sure if she had blood/semen on hands. Any risk of hiv or other std's?
No STD or HIV risk: The inner thigh is an unlikely site of genital warts, so skin tags seem more likely. In any case, warts take at least 2 months and often up to 9-12 months to show up after acquring HPV, so nothing to do with more recent sexual exposures. STDs are rarely if ever transmitted by hand-genital contact, even when genital fluids are used as lubricant -- and for sure zero risk for HIV. ...Read more
Usually not: HPV DNA may persist in tissues long after all visible signs of infection (warts, abnormal pap smears) are gone. But it isn't known how often this really happens. Most important, the immune system usually suppresses or cures the virus to a point that warts and abnormal pap smears do not return and the virus cannot be transmitted to partners. So for all practical purposes the infection is gone. ...Read more

For some patients: It depends on the strain of the virus; some strains are more aggressive and prone to cause recurrences, while others are not.

Genital warts: Warts are caused by strains of the HPV, but skin warts are caused by a different strain than genital warts. Touching a wart on a regular skin surface does not spread it to your genital skin. HPV is a family of dozens of different strains, some producing various types of warts but most that do not. Each strain is very specific to where it is found. ...Read more
Person to person: The viruses that cause these specialize in sexual transmission. I'd question the story of someone with warts claiming never to have had sex, but I'm also wise enough not to argue or call them a fibber. Many people who carry these particular HPV strains don't show warts. ...Read more

So, take caution not to spread it by using condom(not100% protection), and informing sex partners of what you got.

Meanwhile, keep up with healthy lifestyle as the long-term care of life. Talk with experts. ...Read more
