 Sometimes the urogenital organs in men there are small entities that can grow and occupy large areas of skin and mucous membranes. These growths are called genital warts in men Genital warts in men - is not only unpleasant, but also dangerous  Genital warts in men - is not only unpleasant, but also dangerous
   and have a viral origin. Infected with human papillomavirus (HPV) is most often through sexual contact. Onset of the disease is usually closely linked to the state of immunity.

Types of warts in men and their causes

Warts in men can be of three types: gabled, flat and wide. The first two types are caused by HPV, the last - the spirochete Treponema pallidum. The most common genital warts.

HPV - DNA is the virus that lives in the skin and mucous membranes of humans and is transmitted primarily through sexual contact. Very rarely, a man can be infected through everyday direct contact with patients.

HPV infection causes papillomavirus (PVI), which is manifested in the form of skin warts and papillomas, and on mucous membranes and the adjacent skin - as warts. PVI - it is one of the most common diseases, but if on a cold, or thrush, we know almost everything, about what constitutes warts, few people know.

A feature of HPV is that hitting a man's body, John can long time (and sometimes life) does not manifest itself. Warts may first appear as a few weeks or several years after infection. As a result, in most cases, people can not determine when and from whom he contracted HPV. Sometimes it happens during labor - HPV is passed from mother to child, and then does not manifest itself in childhood, especially if the child was breastfed.

First warts usually appear on the background of reduced immunity - only under these conditions HPV "alive", begins to multiply and to actively influence the epithelial cells, causing them to actively proliferate. If the immune system is normal, HPV "is hidden in the deep layers of the epithelium, does not prove itself.

How does warts in men

The first signs of HPV infection in men usually appear after a cold, this illness, trauma, stress How to beat stress? Create an oasis  How to beat stress? Create an oasis
   and other factors contributing to reduction of immunity. Sometimes they appear three weeks after exposure - it may indicate a steady decline in immunity Immunity - types and characteristics in children in adults  Immunity - types and characteristics in children in adults

Most often, genital warts appear first on the head and body of the penis. Less frequently - on the scrotum, perineum skin around the anus (anus), inside the anal canal (the lower segments of the colon length 2, 5-5 cm), around the opening of the urethra (urethritis) and inside it. That is genital warts appear on most traumatized places, which are also constantly moistened.

Disease begins with the appearance of one or two or several small outgrowths of gray-pink or flesh-colored, which can significantly grow in a few hours. Genital warts are at the bottom of a thin stem, at the top, they grow in the form of a cauliflower. This is different from the broad (syphilitic) warts, which usually have a broad base.

After primary genital warts grow, their growth and spread may be a long pause and a single pore. Quite often, warts disappear on their own, without treatment - a sign that the immune system returns to normal.

But sometimes the warts begin to grow rapidly, spread to new areas of the urogenital organs and perineum, merge together to form larger and sometimes huge conglomerates, significantly complicating the life of the patient.

Diagnosis and treatment

In order to make the correct diagnosis, from the surface lesions swab is taken and examined by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) - the DNA of the virus is detected. Sometimes histological examination warts take a piece of tissue. Are mandatory blood tests for syphilis Syphilis - punishment of Venus  Syphilis - punishment of Venus
   and HIV infection. With significant expansions of genital warts, and HIV-negative investigated the state of immunity.

Treatment of warts in men depends on the extent of their distribution. But most of it is complex: an antiviral, immunomodulatory (general and local) and symptomatic (preventive and treated complications). For small warts often quite conservative treatment. If many warts or they are growing rapidly, they are removed in different ways.

The appearance of genital warts in men says low immunity, why it happened, it is necessary to find out in the course of the survey.

 One or two papillary proliferation, huge rooster combs, inconspicuous spot on the mucous membranes of the genitals - all warts. Symptoms of the disease may be different, but they have enough special features. And experienced doctor is usually not difficult to make a correct diagnosis.

Symptoms of genital warts

Genital warts caused by human papillomavirus (HPV). The types of HPV that cause genital warts are considered to be relatively safe. The first symptoms appear after one - five months after getting HPV in the body. But sometimes HPV can over the years does not manifest itself, a condition called latency, thus the person is not always a carrier of infection, as HPV "hidden" inside the cells of the deep layers of the epithelium and does not extend to the surface. In this case, the disease can only start with a sharp decrease immunity - while HPV activated quickly multiplies and comes to the surface epithelium. Under the influence of HPV cells start to divide rapidly - growing pointed warts.

It starts with the appearance of the disease in the genital mucosa of a small elevation. Symptoms of the disease can grow very quickly, in just a few hours getting a lot of warts, eventually they merge together. But most of the growth process is limited to a few warts and it stops.

Condyloma is a papillary proliferation of pink or grayish-pink in color with a thin base and a wide tip. The rapid growth of genital warts lead to their merger and the formation of conglomerates in the form of a cauliflower or rooster combs. Typically, such a rapid growth of genital warts associated with impaired immunity. Often, it also occurs in conjunction papillomovirusnoy and coca else sexually transmitted infections (trichomoniasis, gonorrhea, and so on).

In women, genital warts can be located anywhere on the external genitalia, including large and small labia, vaginal wall, cervix. Sometimes the warts are located in and around the urethra (urethritis) and anus. Furthermore, they can appear on the skin of the perineum and inner thighs. In men, a favorite subject of the development of genital warts is the head of the penis, the inner surface of the urethra and anus.

Genital warts are usually traumatized, infected and cause constant discomfort. If they grow in the urethra, there are signs of urination.

Genital warts sometimes (though infrequently) can degenerate into malignant tumors.

Symptoms of flat warts

Flat warts occur, usually asymptomatic. In contrast, they do not grow pointed outward and inward mucosa. A favorite place is the location of the flat warts of the cervix in women and the head of the penis in men. But they may be located on any other part of the mucous membranes of the genitals. Flat warts grow slowly, they are rarely more than two, and often appears one flat warts.

Flat warts often cause changes in the basal layer of the epithelium of genitals. Especially dangerous are the changes in the cervix and the head of the penis. It was found that the types of HPV that cause flat warts are often the "culprits" of cervical cancer Cervical cancer: possible cure  Cervical cancer: possible cure
   and cancer of the head of the penis.

Flat warts noted during the inspection doctor can not always - it is within the mucosa, often almost the same color as the surrounding healthy tissue and rises above the surface. However, an experienced physician during the examination may suspect the presence of flat warts Flat warts - the most dangerous form  Flat warts - the most dangerous form

Colposcope increases the surface in question several times and allows you to see the "hidden" flat warts. In this case, using a colposcope to study a piece of tissue is taken in the area of ​​warts, exciting and surrounding tissue. Histological examination of tissue draw changes characteristic of warts, as well as the degree of change in the basal layer cells adjacent to the epithelium acuminata.

Warts - this is not a safe condition, it requires timely detection and treatment.
