Brief Answer:
Sexual Transmission is most common

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome

I appreciate your concern

HPV predisposes to skin and mucosal membrane tumors. HPV is transmitted via vaginal, anal, or oral sex with an infected individual. The infected individual may have no signs or symptoms of the infection.

Non sexual transmission is not clearly defined and it's advisable to exercise caution with infected person wrt contact.
