What is HPV?

Symptoms requiring HPV treatment

Genital warts caused by the HPV virus may not always cause symptoms in people. Especially extremely small warts in the first stage do not attract much attention. But as time progresses and they grow a little bigger, they reach a visible structure. As genital warts grow, their effect increases and the rate of growth and reproduction also increases. But according to the working principle of the immune system, warts that appear in the genital area can show self-reduction, regression, or recovery.
