Genital Warts in Men
A visual exam of the penis and anus is most important to diagnose genital warts in men. A magnifying glass may be used to help locate abnormal tissue.
Why It Is Done
A physical exam may be done if:
- You have visible genital warts.
- You suspect you may have a human papillomavirus (HPV) infection.
- Your sex partner has been diagnosed with genital warts.
A physical exam often is the only test needed to diagnose genital warts.
