- Warts in men - as often as women
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
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

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
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
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.
