Anogenital warts are small, skin-colored or pink growths that form on the vulva (the lips of the vagina), vagina, penis, or anus. They are caused by a HPV. Anogenital warts are often called just “genital warts” or “anal warts”.
The type of HPV that causes most forms of genital warts is not usually dangerous. But other types of HPV can lead to cancer of the cervix (a part inside the woman’s body), penis, or anus. Most people with genital warts have no symptoms (other than the warts). But some people have itching, burning, or tenderness.
