Genital warts are flesh-colored, soft-to-the-touch bumps on the skind that may look like the surface of a cauliflower. They often grow in more than one place and may cluster in large masses. Genital warts usually are painless, but they may itch.
Other symptoms can include an increase of dampness in the genital area near the warts, the raising of vaginal discharge or vaginal bleeding during or after sex. Genital warts could appear in the vagina or vulva, in the cervix, penis, anus or urethra. It is also possible -but not likely- to find them in the mouth, lips, tongue, palate or throat.
