In general, people who have contracted HPV experience pain, discharge, shallow breathing, and weight loss. Warts that often appear generally develop around the genital region and may be small or large. They have a cauliflower-like appearance, and sometimes go unnoticed until they become painful. With or without warts, people with HPV also often experience itching in the groin.  HPV can also cause mouth sores, usually in the space between the base of the tongue and the tonsils. HPV that has caused cancer can show up as lumps in the throat - sometimes people with HPV are unaware they have the condition until this swelling begins. Growths caused by the virus may be malignant or benign.
