Genital Warts is spread via sexual skin-to-skin contact with someone who has the infection. This includes vaginal, anal, and oral sex.

It's estimated that around 90% of genital warts are caused by infection with HPV types 6 and 11. However, these types are not associated with a significant risk of cancer. It's also estimated that around two thirds of sexually active adults will get infected with at least one strain of HPV in their lifetime.

Cryotherapy treatment for Genital Warts is available at select CityDoc clinics, and costs £120. To book an appointment, please call 0333 0069976, as these appointments are only available with a doctor.

Symptoms

Genital warts look like flesh coloured bumps or growths that show up on your vulva, vagina, cervix, penis, scrotum, or anus. They can be big or small, and it can vary how many you have, from just one wart to several warts. 

Common genital wart symptoms include:

  • Flesh coloured bumps or growths in the genital areas
  • Very itchy
  • Can be single or multiple, big or small.

Treatment Available at CityDoc

At CityDoc, our preferred treatment for Genital Warts is a freezing technique, also known as cryotherapy. In this method, a liquid nitrogen is applied to the warts to remove them. 

This produces a mild contained burn to the skin, which will gradually fade, with the result of removing the wart. 

Cryotherapy is available a select CityDoc clinics, and the treatment costs £120.
