Condylomas are a clinical term that refers to bulges that develop on the skin, or the mucous, which are caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV).
Out of the 189 recognized subtypes of papilloma virus (PV), about 40 are sexually transmitted, while some of them cause condylomas.
Condylomas are infections of the mucous of the penis, annus, and vagina, which are venereal diseases, and they are called Condylomas.
Condyloma acuminata (strains 6 and 11 of the virus) are benign lesions that do not cause cancer, as opposed to flat ones (strains 16, 18, 31, 33, and 45 of the virus), which are considered to be subclinical lesions of the reproductive system and the anus, and if not treated promptly, they can cause cancer.
Only condyloma acuminata are visible to the naked eye, while flat condylomas can only be seen with special magnifying glasses, strong light, and dermatological and dermoscopic instruments and diagnostic tests.
