Treatments for HPV
There is no treatment for asymptomatic HPV infection.
Instead, doctors treat the health problems that are caused by the HPV virus.
When genital warts appear, a variety of treatments can be used. The patient
can apply prescription creams at home. Or a doctor can surgically remove or
freeze off the warts.
Early treatment of warts is discouraged by some doctors because genital warts
can go away on their own. It can also take time for all warts to appear. So a
person who treats warts as soon as they appear may need another treatment later
Anal cancer can be treated with radiation, chemotherapy, and surgery. The
specific treatments depend on the stage of cancer - how big the tumor is and how
far the cancer has spread.
