Papillomatosis is a disease caused by the human papilloma virus. There are more than 70 types of papillomaviruses, and the common feature that unites them is that they all cause tissue proliferation by damaging the skin and mucous membranes. If the virus gets on the skin, if the papilloma gets on the mucous membrane of the rectum or genitals, acute warts are formed.
Candylomas cannot be considered fearless in any case. The point is that the development of warts goes like the development of tumors. Therefore, long-term candylomatosis is considered a precancerous disease. It has been proven that cervical candylomatosis increases the risk of uterine cancer by 50-60 times.
