Genital warts are a common sexually transmitted disease caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV). Most patients with genital warts due to unprotected sex, having many sexual partners. Typical symptoms are small, discolored or gray warts that appear on the genitals, causing itching and bleeding during sex.
According to Dr. Lien, there are severe cases where the urethra must be removed and shaped like a flute. The common point of patients is that they are afraid to go to a reputable hospital or medical facility, then treat with less accurate methods, making the disease worse.
Therefore, doctor Lien recommends practicing safe sex, avoiding sharing personal items with people with genital warts. When the genitals have abnormal signs, they should be examined at a reputable medical facility. If treated late or incorrectly treated, the disease will worsen, leaving sequelae such as cervical cancer, penile cancer. In addition, the patient needs to share information about the disease with his wife or lover, sexual partner in order to detect warts and treat them promptly.
