Thanks for posting your query.

I think what you are referring to is genital warts as you have selected category of sexual problems.

Genital warts, a type of papilloma is caused by HPV (human papillomaviruses) infection.

Yes,they are very contagious and can spread through sexual contact.

When this is suspected it is better to seek medical care early for effective treatment to prevent its spread.

I hope this helps and clarify your concern.

Please write again if you have something more to ask.
