, sometimes called venereal warts
, are actually a common type of sexually transmitted disease (STD). As the name suggests, these warts affect the moist tissues of the genital area. Genital warts are typically flesh- or gray-colored and can be either raised or flat. They vary in size from too small to spot with the naked eye to large, uneven, cauliflower-like clusters.
In men, genital warts can grow on the tip or shaft of the penis, the anus, or the scrotum.
