Warts on penis
is there a cure for warts on the penis?
Warts on the penis are caused by HPV (human papilloma virus) which is transmitted sexually. These warts can be controlled by several means including topical medications such as Aldara which can be applied at home, or by surgical removal or freezing. HPV is not curable, as there may still be some virus in the skin, and recurrences are common even after the treatments listed above have been done.
