Does the human papillomavirus also affect men?

By Zaira Salvador.
Last Update: 12/02/2019

Yes, although in most cases there are no symptoms. In others, one or more warts may appear on the penis, testicles, groin, thighs, or around the anus.

It is important to detect HPV in men, as it can be transmitted to women through unprotected sex and, if you are pregnant, would also pose a risk to the baby.
