USC Surgery / Conditions / Anal Condyloma Acuminata

Anal condyloma acuminata, commonly known as anal warts, are caused by some types of human papillomavirus (HPV). The condition affects the areas around and inside the anus, and it is generally transmitted through sexual contact. The virus may be dormant in the skin, so an individual can transmit it even if they do not have visible warts. Condoms do not protect against the transmission of this virus. While anal intercourse does not guarantee transmission, disruption of the lining of the anus from intercourse can increase the chances.

Signs and Symptoms of anal condyloma acuminata

Bumps near the anus or other genital areas. Bleeding, itching, or irritation near the anus.
