About the human papillomavirus
Human papillomavirus infection (HPIV) is considered the most common sexually transmitted infection, and is caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV), which is so common that it is considered to be present in up to 98% of the sexually active population, throughout their lives.
Fortunately, most cases of HPVI disappear on their own, thanks to our defenses, so that in many cases we will never know that we had the infection. When the infection does not disappear, it can be associated with genital warts or lesions that are considered premalignant or precancerous. Genital warts can be noticed with the naked eye as solitary or multiple small “bumps”, they can be flat or raised, they even have shapes like “cauliflower”, and they can be located on the cervix, in the vagina, on the vulva, or on the multiple sites.
