Anal warts are a form of genital warts caused by human papillomavirus (hpv). Theyre a type of genital wart that occurs inside or around the anus. If symptoms for anal warts do show up, often in the start, they are a small dot or lump that is not even visible to the eye. They can then grow to have cauliflower-look as they get bigger, sometimes with multiple warts clustered together. Anal warts, condyloma acuminata, affect the area around and inside the anus. The warts first appear as tiny growths, as small as a pinhead, eventually growing to the size of a pea. Because they dont typically cause pain, patients often dont even realize they have them. Symptoms although anal warts often go unnoticed, some patients will experience some outward symptoms. Genital warts are transmitted through sexual activity, including oral, vaginal, and anal sex. You may not start to develop warts for several weeks or months after infection. The genital warts virus can be passed on whether or not there are visible warts. Many people with the virus do not have symptoms but can still pass it on. If you have genital warts, your current sexual partners should get tested as they may have warts and not know it. Treatment may involve topical medications, liquid nitrogen, or surgical removal. Anal warts (condyloma acuminata) are caused by the human papilloma virus (hpv), the most common sexually transmitted disease (std). The warts affect the area around and inside the anus, but may also develop on the skin of the genital area.
