The warts are one of the most common sexually transmitted diseases caused by certain strains of HPV.
Some strains of the virus does not cause visible warts and some implicated in cervical cancer in women. This virus induces the rapid proliferation of skin cells, thereby developing benign lumps that are more annoying than dangerous, but which is highly contagious.
The condylomata acuminata, as is the standard designation of warts, mainly transmitted by sexual contact. After the initial contact, the HPV virus may remain inactive or latent in the skin and may not be immediately visible symptoms. This means that many people may be carriers of HPV without ever learn. It may take even six months to develop a wart (incubation period). Although we are all exposed to HPV, some seem to be more sensitive to it, while others are naturally more resistant. Genital warts occur most often when the body’s immune system is vulnerable or weakened.

Oncogenes – carcinogenic strains of HPV do not cause visible warts. However cause dysplasia, a precancerous lesion in the cells of the cervix or rectum. But this does not mean that anyone has shown dysplastic lesions due to the virus will show cancer. (Only 2% of women who develop dysplasia have cancer of the cervix).
