Genital Warts

Genital warts are one of the most common and fastest spreading venereal diseases worldwide. Genital warts are benign, but disfiguring and contagious skin tumors in the genital and anal area, which are difficult to treat. Approximately 14 million people in North America and 15 million people in Europe are infected by human papilloma viruses (HPV type 6 or 11), which cause genital warts.
