OOOWWWCCCHHH! These weird warts hurt a lot! Maybe I got a STD... Oh no!
Now I have to go to the doctors! This is so embarrassing! I'm never doing this again!
The genital warts are a sign of HPV. Thankfully, we can remove these warts and you'll be good to go. You may want to get tested for HPV cancer, though.
This is already too much. I'm not going to get the HPV tests.
HPV most likely will have no visible symptoms, or no symptoms at all. The only visible symptom of HPV is genital warts.
Oh no! The warts were definitely less painful than what I am feeling now! Why didn't I get tested for HPV?!
Genital warts, although highly embarrassing, are easily treatable.
You definitely have HPV cancer. At this point, the cancer is at the advanced stage so we can't really do anything.
They can be removed like any other type of wart, which means that a doctor freezes them off.
Why did this have to happen to her?
Some symptoms show themselves decades later in the form of HPV cancer. HPV cancer can happen in the throat and the genital area.
Cervical cancer can be treated ONLY if you catch it early. In order to remove the precancerous cells, doctors use cryosurgery (freeze cancer cells off), LEEP (use a hot wire loop to remove cells), and Surgical conization (use scalpel/laser to remove a cone shaped piece of tissue from the cervix).
Unfortunately, most forms of HPV cancer are untreatable and incurable because we do not know enough about HPV to treat them. Some types of HPV eventually will lead to death.
