Hello and welcome to HCM,
Genital warts caused by human papilloma virus (HPV) causes raised, papillary lesions usually with irregular surface. The color of the lesions is usually skin colored.
These lesions are usually painless and do not itch.
They may be single or may be clustered.
The gross appearance may be deceptive.
Other lesions like squamous papillomas, fibro-epithelial polyps, etc may also appear the same.
Exact diagnosis is made on histopathologic examination.
These warts caused by HPV shows characteristic koiliocytic change in the lining cells.

Thanks and take care
