In brief: Stay vigilant

It's caused by hpv, so consider getting the immunization now.
This won't protect you from strains you've already picked up. Use barrier protection except with your lifetime committed partner. Keep an eye on yourself and any lesions -- bumps, red areas, white areas -- need to be seen by your physician. Do this and you won't lose anything irreplacible to this dread disease.
