Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hello , i am Dr Saleem . Welcome to JustAnswer . I will be answering your shortly .
Can you please tell me about your sexual orientation please ? Are you heterosexual ?
Most of the HPV infections remain silent in men and clear away on their own . HPV infection can increase a man's risk of getting genital cancers, although these cancers are not common. These can however cause warts commonly .
There is no treatment required unless warts appear .
Condoms can provide some protection against HPV transmission. Unfortunately, they aren't 100% effective, since HPV is transmitted primarily by skin-to-skin contact. The virus can still infect the skin uncovered by the condom.
The risk of HPV related cancers is markedly higher amongst homosexuals . But still genital cancers are not very common.
Let me know if you have any more queries
I understand your concern . Well you can get recurrent warts but once the episode settles or any symptoms resolve , usually it can clear away at its own . Vaccination is effective for prevention of few strains such as HPV 6 and 11 however once you get the virus , vaccines cant help to clear it away.
