In brief: Yes
Genital warts can be treated with a medication called Aldara (imiquimod) - a topical cream. It can also be treated by freezing them off.
We can not cure hpv, the underlying virus which causes genital warts but the warts can be treated.

In brief: Genital warts
There is no single effective cure for removal of genital warts.
A number of treatment options exist; however, no treatment is 100% effective in eliminating warts and preventing them from coming back in all patients. It also is not possible to eliminate infection with human papillomavirus once it has occurred. Genital warts may go away on their own in about 10%-20% of people over 3-5 months.
