Q. Hello, I have noticed I have a singular wart on my genital area but it does not bother me. I have had sexual intercourse but my partner is unaffected, should I be concerned?
A. A genital wart is caused by a virus. Often, they are visible but sometimes they are internal and are not visible. There are certain strains of the virus that are more serious than others in that they can progress to cause different types of cancers. Your primary health care provider or Corner Health can do testing to determine any risk. Gardasil is the vaccine that can prevent genital warts.
