What is a wart? What is HPV?

A wart is a virus classified within the Human Papilloma Viruses (HPVs), which represent a group of more than 100 types of wart viruses. Warts are called papillomaviruses because certain types cause warts, or papilloma, which are benign (noncancerous) tumors. Warts can grow on all parts of your body. A wart can grow on your skin, mouth, genitals, and rectal area. Some types of HPV tend to cause warts on the skin, while other HPV types tend to cause warts on the genitals and rectal area.
