WARTS (CONDYLOMA ACUMINATA)
Anal warts are caused by the sexually transmitted disease known as the human papilloma virus (HPV), and manifest as small spots or growths in and around the anus or genitals. Some patients with anal warts will experience symptoms of itching, mucus discharge, or bleeding, while others do not experience any accompanying pain or discomfort. Treatment for mild, isolated cases of anal warts generally involves topical medication or freezing the warts with liquid nitrogen. More severe cases, or cases of internal anal warts (located inside the anal canal), may require surgical removal.
