What are papillomas?


Papillomas are often confused by people and are called “moles”.

They are caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV). They are found in the neck, face, armpits, chest, thighs and less frequently in other parts of the body.


They are mainly transmitted by skin contact, and then they are propagated by friction in the same person.

Many times, as in pregnancy, their growth is rapid.

Treatment by a dermatologist is easy and relatively painless for the patient with the use of Laser therapy or older methods, such as electrocautery – cryoablation.
