Thanks for writing in.

Condyloma acuminata means a genital wart.

I agree with your doctor that you should be worry free so far CA is concerned.
However, you should be vigilant about any further lesions in near future and should get treatment if you see any suspicious lesion.

I recommend getting yourself tested for other STIs like HIV, HEPATITIS B & Centre, syphilis.
This is just a medical protocol that if you have one sexually transmitted infection, it is prudent to get screened for other STIs too.
But the decision is personally yours.

I hope I have answered your query.
If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
