by Rachel on August 17, 2011

so what should i do now? there are no tests for men so i cant get tested, she has had sex with two other people after me, and im not sure if she got it from them or not, and both of the people she slept with after me has had sex with other people as well so there is a chance i dont have it, i heard that 99 % of the time in men the body will fight off the virus. im just depressed about this. what should i do now?

Most men who get HPV (of any type) never develop any symptoms or health problems. But some types of HPV can cause genital warts. Other types can cause penile cancer or anal cancer. The types of HPV that can cause genital warts are not the same as the types that can cause penile or anal cancer. About 1% of sexually active men in the U.S. have genital warts at any one time. IF your circumcised, penile cancer is extremely rare.

Currently, there is no test designed to find HPV in men. But HPV is very common and most men with HPV will never develop health problems from it. Finding out if you have HPV is not as important as finding out if you have the diseases that it can cause.
Most of the time, you can see genital warts. Some doctors may use a vinegar solution to help find flat warts—but this test can sometimes wrongly identify normal skin as a wart.

Check the SOURCE for the symptoms.
