Information About HPV

Human papillomaviruses (HPVs) are a group of viruses that can infect the skin and mucous membranes of both men and women. Some types of HPV cause common skin warts, such as those found on the hands and soles of the feet. These types of HPV do not cause genital warts.
 
With a genital HPV infection, genital warts are the most easily recognized symptom. However, not everyone with a genital HPV infection will develop genital warts. While there is no cure for HPV, there are treatments designed to deal with the physical changes that can occur with an infection, such as warts and precancerous cervical changes.
