We all know that genital warts are a disease that occurs in the reproductive organs, but people always say it is not comprehensive, let alone the symptoms of these areas. So, where will genital warts appear? What is its performance?
The manifestations of genital warts in several special areas
Male urethral opening
The surface of urethral warts can be smooth or papillary, with a bright red color and a moist surface. During the examination, the urethral mucosa should be fully exposed in order to see warts. The HpV virus can retrograde upwards along the urethra, causing infection of the urethral epithelium, which requires urethroscopy examination. Although the urethral opening is not a common site for genital warts, treatment is difficult and prone to recurrence.
2. Female cervix
The cervical epithelium is the part that moves from the stratified squamous epithelium of the vagina to the columnar epithelium of the cervical canal. Although not a common site for genital warts, once infected with HpV16 or 18, epithelial cells are prone to atypical hyperplasia and even invasive cancer. Cervical epithelial infection is common in subclinical infections. Local application of gauze soaked in 3% to 5% acetic acid solution can make the damage more clear and obvious during colposcopy examination.
3. Perianal area
The skin around the anus has more wrinkles and friction during walking, so once genital warts occur, they will occur frequently. Initially, there were most papules, and then warts grew proudly, which could be large pedicled flowers or more flattened with small papillary plaques on the surface. Due to secondary infections, secretions often have unpleasant odors. In individual cases, lesions may appear in the anal mucosal epithelium. If it occurs around the anus, please pay attention to asking if you have a history of homosexuality and anal sex.
4. Lip and pharyngeal mucosa
Occasionally occurring in the oral and pharyngeal mucosal epithelium, it manifests as small, flushed, soft, and papillary warty organisms. It can occur during oral intercourse.
The contagiousness of genital warts is unbearable for people. To avoid the contagiousness of this disease, we need to be good at ourselves, cherish our bodies, and not have sex casually. Do you know the above four points about the symptoms of genital warts in different parts?
