What are the symptoms?
You will see genital warts appearing on the moist surfaces normally at the vaginal and rectum entrance among women. However, they can appear anywhere in the genital area in both men and women. Genital warts appear to be tiny, flat and flesh-colored bumps, 1 to 2 mm in diameter. Sometimes, they also appear in clusters that are quite large and sometimes they are so small that you can’t see them with the naked eye. Genital warts can cause itching, burning, tenderness or pain.
How to diagnose?
Before diagnosing, a dermatologist will get to know about your medical history and sexual habits. He/she will also examine you physically for evidence of genital warts. As the appearance of genital warts is very characteristic therefore the diagnosis does not require any testing.

Anoscopy: In this diagnostic test, anoscope is inserted into the anus to see warts beyond the skin.
Tissue Biopsy: In this test, a small piece of tissue is removed from the affected skin and is examined in the lab.
Colposcopy: It involves the use of a Colposcope to inspect warts in the vagina or the cervix.
Papanicolaou (Pap) Smear Test: Also known as the Pap test, it involves opening the vaginal canal with the help of a speculum to collect cells for examination.
