In brief: Many have no Sx

Hpv can pass from one to another with no symptoms at all.
Some strains will persist in the body for decades & only be recognized when cell changes on a pap smear suggest precancerous growth. Some strains will produce skin bumps that can grow into wart like growths on the genitals(male or female) & spread over time.
