Genital Warts Test in London

This is a common STD, often caused by certain types of HPV. Genital warts appear around the anus, genitals, and on the skin, differing from warts on other parts of the body. It's impossible to get genital warts from touching a wart on a foot or hand. Transmission is more likely when symptoms are present. If you discover a wart, visit us for diagnosis and treatment.


  • It can transmit through skin-to-skin contact with an infected person during anal, oral, or vaginal sex. It can spread even if no one ejaculates, and penetration by a penis might not be complete to transmit them.
  • It can be passed on without showing any symptoms, though this is less common.
  • HPV types 6 and 11 are commonly associated with genital warts. So, warts can also be the alarming sign sometimes.
  • It may spread to the baby in rare cases during vaginal childbirth. 

When should I get tested?

Testing is recommended if you notice abnormal skin growth in your genital area. While a visual diagnosis is often sufficient for genital warts, routine screenings for sexually active individuals can aid in early detection


  • The appearance of whitish or skin-colored bumps on the anus, cervix, penis, scrotum, vagina, or vulva. They resemble small pieces of cauliflower.
  • You may have one wart or a bunch of them, and they can be large or small. They might be itchy, though most of the time, they do not hurt. 

What does the test include?

The test typically includes a swab of the affected area, examined for HPV DNA to diagnose genital warts and guide treatment. However, swab tests might not always be necessary if the diagnosis is clear from visual inspection by a healthcare professional.

What are the risk factors for getting genital warts?

  • People with weakened immune systems
  • Individuals under 30 years of age
  • People addicted to smoking
  • Children whose mothers were infected at the time of childbirth
  • Individuals with a history of child abuse 

Can you tell how long you have had genital warts?

It can take several weeks, months, or even years after having sexual contact with someone with genital warts for them to appear. The incubation period for the HPV virus, which causes genital warts, varies widely among individuals.

What can make genital warts worse?

If you are already dealing with genital warts, shaving and waxing your pubic hair may exacerbate the condition. These hair removal methods can lead to abrasions, tiny cuts, or skin irritation, which may facilitate further infection by allowing the virus to enter more easily and infect a larger area of skin.
