Genital warts often look like small cauliflower or mushroomy growths. They can be raised or flat and any size. They are caused by an HPV infection and may appear as soon as a couple of weeks after exposure or a few months. It is rare for them to show up for the first time years after the exposure. If you see genital warts on your partner, avoid contact with that area until your partner has been treated and the warts are gone.
