Condyloma Acuminata for Men

Published at : 16-12-2019 View : 7088

  Condyloma acuminata is a papilloma caused by human papillomavirus (HPV). Most often, they develop on the glans, but they may be found on the skin of the shaft of the penis. Accordingly, these warts are not precancerous and do not progress to invasive carcinomas.

Symptoms of Condyloma Acuminata

  Condyloma Acuminata looks like skin-colored or whitish bumps that show up on your penis, and they kind of look like little pieces of cauliflower, you can have just one wart or a bunch of them, and they can be big or small.

 

 

  In men, you might get Condyloma Acuminata:

   On your penis (or under your foreskin or on the shaft)

   On your scrotum

   Inside your urethra

   Inside or outside your anus

  It’s also possible to get warts on your lips and in your mouth, nose or throat, but this doesn’t happen often. It’s the most common visible manifestation of human papillomavirus (HPV) infection and affects approximately 1% of the population with 90% caused by HPV types 6 and 11.

Causes of Condyloma Acuminata

  Most cases of Condyloma Acuminata are caused by the Human Papillomavirus (HPV). There are 30 to 40 strains of Human Papillomavirus (HPV) that specifically affect the genitals, but just a few of these strains cause genital warts. The Human Papillomavirus (HPV) virus is highly transmittable through skin-to-skin contact, which is why it’s considered a Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs).

  The Human Papillomavirus (HPV) is so common that most sexually active people get it at some point; however, the virus doesn’t continuously result in complications like genital warts. In fact, in most cases, the virus goes away on its own without causing any health issues. Condyloma Acuminata is usually caused by strains of Human Papillomavirus (HPV) that differ from the strains that cause warts on your hands or other parts of the body.

Treatment for Condyloma Acuminata

  Condyloma acuminata is the most often detected with the naked eye and they’re sometimes difficult to diagnose, either because they’re the same color as the skin or they’re concealed in folds of skin or a mucous membrane. It can be treated, but they may reappear at a later stage. Also, treatment for condyloma acuminata depends on size and location. There are HPV vaccines that are approved for men and women ages 9 to 45 that can help prevent infection. By age 26 and after, most people have already come into contact with the HPV virus, and so the vaccine is not useful.
