At the present time, British GUM clinics see about 91,000 new cases of genital warts a year. Many other people develop warts, but they are not seen at clinics.
Genital warts are caused by the Human Papillona Virus (HPV), which is very common. There are many types of the virus, some linked to Cervical cancer in women. However, the type that causes Genital Warts is harmless and does not cause any serious illnesses.
Many months can pass from the time of infection to the actual development of warts, so it may be very difficult to determine who you got them from.
In women, HPV can lead to microscopic changes in the cervix and to the development of cervical cancer.
HPV is now thought to be associated with various other cancers, including carcinoma of the anus and possibly of the throat and adjoining regions.
