There are several ways to treat genital warts. Most of the time, the virus causes genital warts naturally. Some people wait for the warts themselves to disappear. You might choose to have treatment because warts can spread from skin-to-skin contact and you might be uncomfortable with their appearance.
A health care provider can freeze or burn off some genital warts. They can be removed by surgery or lasers. Some warts can also be treated with topical medications. Some treatments can be done at home while others require the assistance of your doctor. Your health care provider is the best person to tell you what type of cancer you have.
Your choice of treatment will affect the cost of your genital problems. Before you can get treatment for your genital warts, it is important to have them evaluated by a medical professional. Diagnosis and treatment may be covered by insurance, and some health centers (including your local Planned Parenthood health center) may be able to charge on a sliding-scale basis. To inquire about insurance coverage, costs and payment, call your doctor before you go.
