Genital Warts
A sexually transmitted disease that is caused by infection with the human papilloma virus (HPV), genital warts are characterized by the presence of skin colored to tan bumps with a convoluted surface.  Lesions are of particular concern in women as certain high risk subtypes of HPV can cause precancerous cervical lesions and even cervical cancer.  The most widely used treatment is liquid nitrogen freezing (cryotherapy), but topical treatments are also available.  A vaccine is also available for those who have not yet been exposed to the HPV virus.  The use of condoms can help reduce the transmission of the disease.
