- Venereal disease: A disease that is contracted and transmitted by sexual contact, caused by microorganisms that survive on the skin or mucus membranes, or that are transmitted via semen, vaginal secretions, or blood during intercourse. The genital areas provide a moist, warm environment that is especially conducive to the proliferation of bacteria, viruses, and yeasts, so a great many diseases can be transmitted this way, including AIDS, chlamydia, genital warts, gonorrhea, syphilis, yeast infections, and some forms of hepatitis
- HPV: The Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) includes more than 70 different varieties of the virus, some of which are not sexually transmitted, including warts present on the hands and feet.
Genital Warts – also called condylomata acuminata.
Genital warts are warts that appear in the genital area. There can be 1 wart or a cluster of warts. People get these warts by picking up the human papillomavirus (HPV) from someone who is already infected with this virus. Our practice specializes in treating sexually transmitted genital warts in New York. These warts can take on many different types of appearances, may be raised or flat, small or large, and can range from pink to dark brown in coloration. There may be one or more visible warts on the skin and they may or may not cluster together.
Many people infected with sexually transmitted HPV will not have any visible signs, which mean that they may not even realize they have become infected with the disease. Often, we can detect these so-called microscopic warts using specialized equipment, however, some cases of HPV will not result in any warts at all.
If symptoms do occur, symptoms will usually happen within a few weeks after the individual becomes infected. Sometimes, however, they will take months or years to appear. This is why it is especially important to be tested and treated right away. Call Central Park Medical Associates today to schedule a private and confidential screening. We offer same-day testing, results, and the latest in laser therapies for New York HPV.
- High-risk strains of the human papillomavirus (HPV) are now well established as the causative agents responsible for cervical dysplasia. HPV 16 is the most oncogenic, accounting for almost half of all cervical cancers, and HPV 16 and 18 together account for approximately 70% of cervical cancers.
- Most HPV infections are acquired within the first years of sexual activity, and the risk of infection is proportionally related to the number of sexual partners. However, the majority of HPV infections are transient in young women.
- Cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) caused by HPV can clear without treatment, but the rate of clearance varies according to the severity of the lesion; high-grade lesions have a greater rate of progression to cervical cancer.
- In a combined analysis of data from 4 clinical trials, the efficacy of the quadrivalent vaccine in the per-protocol group was 99% against HPV type 16/18-related CIN grade 2/3 or adenocarcinoma in situ.
- Protection against genital warts caused by HPV types 6, 11, 16, or 18 was likewise high, with the vaccine preventing 99% of these infections.
- The efficacy of HPV vaccination is greatest when given to HPV-naive women.
- The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices recommended that the vaccine should be administered to girls aged 11 to 12 as part of the routine vaccination schedule, and that it could be administered to girls as young as 9 years old. It should also be offered to girls and women aged 13 to 26 who have not yet completed the vaccination series. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, the Society for Adolescent Medicine, and the American Academy of Family Physicians support similar recommendations.
- Debate is currently ongoing with regard to whether the HPV vaccine will become part of the mandatory vaccination schedule.

How Do Dermatologists Treat Genital Warts?
A dermatologist can diagnose genital warts by examining the warts during an office visit. Sometimes a dermatologist will remove a wart or part of it and send it to a laboratory. This can confirm that a patient has genital warts.
Some genital warts clear without treatment. But removing warts has benefits because treatment:
- Lowers the risk of spreading the virus.
- Can relieve any pain and itching.
- Lets a person know that the growths are genital warts, not cancer.
- Removes warts that can be hard to keep clean.
