Condyloma, also known as anal warts, are growths found on the skin around the anus or in the lower rectum. Condyloma is caused by the human papillomavirus, which is usually transmitted through sexual contact.
Signs & Symptoms:
- Condyloma may produce no symptoms at all. Some patients may notice small growths in the anal area and complaints of itching, burning, tenderness, pain during intercourse, or frequent urination.
Condyloma surgery is the removal of anal warts. If they are not removed, the warts will grow larger and multiply, and if left untreated, the warts may lead to an increased risk of cancer in the affected area. The exact procedure also depends on the number and location of the warts; options include cryotherapy, shave excision, laser surgery, or excision.
