If you’re sexually active, it’s important to get routinely tested for the full range of sexually transmitted diseases. That said, one, in particular, stands out.
Human papillomavirus (HPV) is the most common STD. It’s also technically not a single disease, but the name given to a group of more than 200 infections.
While it can go away on its own, some types of HPV result in genital warts and lead to cancer. As a result, seeking treatment for HPV is important in protecting both your sexual and overall health.
One of the primary symptoms of HPV is genital warts. These warts look and feel like warts that would develop anywhere else on your body. They’re usually small bumps and don’t cause you any pain.
The two types of HPV that most commonly cause genital warts (types 6 and 11) generally don’t lead to cancer. That said, because HPV increases your risk for anal, cervical, and squamous cancers, SINY® Dermatology’s team of expert physicians offers treatment for these warts while screening your body for cancer.
Their offices are among a small number of dermatologists in New York to offer analscopy. This minimally invasive diagnostic procedure gives them essential information about the status of your HPV so they can monitor your body for any signs of cancer.
Even if your HPV never leads to cancer, you don’t want to live with warts. That’s why SINY® Dermatology offers treatment for warts from the comfort and convenience of their offices.
The professional, discreet team at SINY® Dermatology offers a number of genital wart treatments, so you can find what works best for you. They can freeze your warts with liquid nitrogen, inject them with a candida antigen, or use photochemotherapy to clear them.
If you have genital warts resulting from HPV, look no further than SINY® Dermatology for effective, thorough treatment that both removes your warts and screens for the development of cancer. Call SINY® Dermatology or book your appointment online to get started.
