The Right Treatment for You
The primary goal of genital wart treatment is the removal of the warts and to prevent a re-occurrence, when possible. If not removed, the warts can grow larger and more numerous. They can also spread to other areas, like from a woman’s vagina to her anus without any contact. In addition, there is evidence that these warts can become cancerous if left untreated.
At HPV Centers of America, we offer three basic types of treatment options, and we will partner with you to help you decide which is best for your condition:
Attacking HPV above and below the skin is highly effective because it uses the powerful antiviral drug Interferon to suppress the virus and lasers to vaporize the wart.
- Surgery can include the burning or freezing of the wart, use of lasers to vaporize the tissue, or the conventional cutting off the lesion with a scalpel.
- Chemical agents can include the use of topical pharmaceutical creams, ointments, acids or freezing to remove the wart.
Several factors will influence your treatment option, such as if this is your first bout with the disease or have past therapies failed and the warts returned.
