Papilloma on the vulva (HPV) generally self-resolves however when it persists, it can cause warts, such as genital warts, or certain cancers. When genital warts become present, they may appear as a small bump, cluster of bumps or stem-like protrusions. They can range in size and appearance and be large, small, flat or cauliflower shaped and may be white or flesh tone.
The most common area affected in women includes the vulva. However, they can also be present near the anus, on the cervix or within the vagina. Warts in men may appear on the penis, scrotum or around the anus. In both men and women, the groin may also be another area where genital warts are found.
Genital HPV infections are contracted through sexual intercourse, anal sex and other skin-to-skin contact in the genital region. Some HPV infections that result in oral or upper respiratory lesions are contracted through oral sex.
If you're pregnant and have an HPV infection with genital warts, the warts might enlarge and multiply during pregnancy. Treatment might have to wait until after delivery.
Large genital warts can block the birth canal, complicating vaginal delivery. The infection might be linked to a rare, noncancerous growth in the baby's voice box (larynx).
Warts are contagious. They spread by contact with a wart or with something that touched the wart.
