Condyloma

Condyloma

Condyloma is commonly referred to as genital warts. These warts are symptoms of sexually transmitted diseases including Human Papillomavirus (HPV). Genital warts are spread through skin-to-skin contact during sexual intercourse. 

Causes
Genital warts are the most common symptom of HPV. HPV is transmissible to a sexual partner even if there are no visible symptoms at the time of sexual intercourse.

Symptoms
Condyloma is often found in clusters as opposed to single warts. They often vary in size and color and sometimes bleed. These warts can be found externally on the surface of the skin of the labia or anus. They can also occur internally at the opening to the urethra, on the cervix, inside the vagina or inside the anus. Genital warts can cause itching or discomfort and may turn red if aggravated.

Diagnosis and Screening
Condyloma is often diagnosed visually, though some physicians choose to confirm the medical condition through a biopsy. Condyloma can be prevented by a vaccination that protects from the infection of HPV

Treatment
Currently, there is no cure for genital warts; however symptoms can disappear without treatment. If the condyloma does not disappear over time, it can be controlled with a topical gel or cream. Additionally, some women choose to undergo cryosurgery in order to remove the warts.
