Patient Comments: Genital Warts in Men (HPV Virus) - Symptoms

What were the symptoms of your genital warts?

Comment from: cham3rd, 55-64 Male (Patient) Published: March 22

I'm married but for more than a year I've had a second partner who was just diagnosed with vaginal warts. After learning this, I visited my urologist and tests came back negative. He said other than visual inspection there isn't an actual HPV test for men. Is this true? Although I don't have signs of warts, what if I'm the carrier?
