  3. Anal condylomata & Anal...

Anal warts or also called condylomas (condylomata) are small, cauliflower-like skin growths around or inside the anal opening. They are caused by the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) and in very early phase may resolve on treatment with a cream boosting local immune response. But in most of the cases the little lesions need to be destroyed by freezing or laser or cut off surgically. Some types of HPV can cause cancerous changes, and so warts can coincide with anal cancer or its precursor anal intraepithelial neoplasia (AIN).

What signs and symptoms one has with this problem?

Anal warts are not painful and they are not bleeding. Most of the time patients notice some roughness, some little hard thing(s) around the anal opening when touched by finger, which does not go away, might grow in size or become more in number.
