Our expert says:
Warts on the penis are caused by one of the subtypes of human papilloma virus which are specific to the skin on the genitals. This condition is sexually transmitted but beacuse it is spread via skin to skin transmission, it is not possible to prevent, even if one uses a condom. It is also easily spread so even if you have only had one previous partner it is possible to be infected and also does not require penetrative sex for infection to occur. It would be best or you to consult a medical practioner to confirm the diagnosis and to advise on the best treatment.
