What do genital warts look like?

ANSWER

Genital warts look like small flesh-colored, pink or red growths in or around the sex organs. The warts may look similar to the small parts of a cauliflower or they may be very tiny and hard to see. They often appear in clusters of three or four, and may grow and spread rapidly. They usually aren't painful, although they may cause mild pain, bleeding, and itching.
