Genital warts are a common sexually transmitted infection that is caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV). The HPV virus affects the tissues of the genitalia. Warts can appear too small to be visible, but appearance can range from small, flesh-colored bumps, to large with a cauliflower-like appearance. Not all strains of HPV will cause genital warts, but some forms of the HPV virus can additionally cause cervical cancer, so it's an STD of substantial concern. HPV is spread through sexual contact, but usually the immune system kills and prevents HPV from developing signs and symptoms.
Warts can occur on the vulva, the walls of the vagina, the anus, the cervix, and in the area around the external genitalia in women; it can also occur on the tip or shaft of the penis, the scrotum, or on the anus in men. Genital warts can also grow in the mouth or throat after oral sexual contact with an infected area. Other symptoms of genital warts are gray swellings in the genital area, itching and discomfort, and bleeding with intercourse.

Does anyone have experience trying to use apple cider vinegar (or white vinegar) with a case of warts as massive as the following? I am scheduled for surgery in 14 days, but the warts are growing so fast right now that in 7 days they have gone from being an invisible cauliflower-like mass inside the anus to a cookie-sized mass jutting outside of the rectum, stuck between the utt checks visibly and threatening to keep growing beyond the confines of the cheeks next. My surgeon and doctor have refused to shrink the mass in between my colonoscopy (which fortunately showed no cancer inside anywhere) and the surgery in two weeks, and said it's too large for topical medicines, etc. I was only diagnosed in August, immediately scheduled the earliest possible laser treatment, and have been unable to get laser treatments more frequently than two weeks apart, which has proved to be enough time for the wart mass to regain all of the size it lost from
Laser treatment 14 days prior. That's why they recommended the surgery (which from what I read online could have an INTENSELY painful "recovery" period afterwards and that the warts will likely return, though treatments thereafter may be easier as they'll be smaller. I am petrified of this period if I can't get maintenance/treatments more frequently than two weeks or more apart while they speed-expand (assuming that continues post-surgery. ). I tried the vinegar last night just with the hope of keeping them from becoming a tail outside my butt. So far it's not clear to me anything has happened but it's very hard to see back there. Looks like the tip may be a little white, and I'm not even sure the mass hasn't grown again since last night. Hard to say. My doctor has recently seen cases even worse than mine--the day before laddering mine she had treated someone with a mass that extended all the way to the testacles, and she was unshackled an unperturbed by the size when she first saw me in August. (She works in a clinic that sees a lot of rectal and hpv-related conditions, though the focus is on HIV there and I am negative for HIV, am otherwise very healthy, got the warts from a long term monogamous partner who I'm no longer with for three years. ) Should I keep up with the burn of the vinegar or follow my doctors advice and let it become a painful bloody life threatening tail before a surgery that could produce months of even greater pain at least while passing bm? Who has treated internal masses this way? Anyone?Replied by Jaketapper
