Condyloma Acuminata (anal warts)
Anal warts are small growths around the anal area caused by the human papilloma virus – the same virus responsible for genital warts. It can take as little as 30 days and up to 6 months or longer for a person to develop anal warts after becoming infected with the virus. Also known as condyloma, these warts may begin growing externally and internally within the anus and lower rectum. People with anal warts should visit a colorectal surgeon for an examination to confirm a diagnosis and establish a plan for treatment.
