Warts are small growths on the skin that are caused by human
Papilloma Viruses (HPV). There are at least 60 known types of HPV. Warts may appear singly or in clusters, and most are benign, although
several types of warts have been linked to an increased likelihood of
There are three types of warts: common warts, plantar
warts, and genital warts.
may be found anywhere on the body, but the most common places
are: hands, fingers, elbows, forearms, knees, face, and the skin around the nails. Warts often occur on skin that is continually
exposed to rubbing, friction, trauma, or abrasion. They can also occur on the larynx (the
voice box) and cause hoarseness. Common warts may be either flat or raised, dry or moist, and have
a rough and pitted surface that is either the same color as or slightly darker than the surrounding skin. These warts may be as small as a pinhead or large as a bean. Highly contagious, the virus that causes
common warts is acquired through breaks in the skin. It may be contracted by going barefoot in a public area like a dressing room at the swimming pool, or even by using another
person's comb or hair brush. Common warts can spread to other body areas if they are picked, trimmed, bitten, or
touched. Warts on the face can spread as a result of shaving. Common warts typically do not cause pain or itching.
Plantar warts - occur on the soles of the feet and the undersides of the toes. They are bumpy white
growths that may resemble calluses, except that they can be tender to the touch and often bleed if the surface is trimmed. They also often have an identifiable hard center. Plantar warts do not tend to spread to other parts of the body. Plantar warts can cause a person to walk
in a manner that can result in back problems as a result of twisting and lifting the
foot to not step on the wart to avoid pain.
Genital warts -
are soft, moist growths found in and around the vagina, anus, penis, groin, and/or
scrotum. In men, they can grow in the urethra as well. They are usually pink or red in color and resemble
tiny heads of cauliflower. Genital warts most often occur in clusters, but they can appear singly as well.
They are sexually transmitted and are highly contagious; because the warts do not usually appear until 3 months or more after an individual becomes infected with the HPV that causes them, the virus
can be spread before the person is even aware they have it. Two of the strains of HPV that cause genital warts have been associated with cancer of the cervix; five strains of HPV are seen in nearly
all surface cancers of the cervix, vagina, vulva, anus, penis, and perianal area. An infant can contract
warts by being exposed to genital warts during the birth process.
