What are the symptoms of latent syphilis?

ANSWER

If you’re not treated for secondary syphilis, the disease may progress to the latent, or hidden, phase. Not everyone who has syphilis will go through this stage. If you do, you won’t have any symptoms, maybe for years. In some cases, symptoms will never return, but the infection isn’t gone. It’s simply progressing to the tertiary stage.
