Condylomas do not cause cancer.
If HPV type 6 or 11 is detected in cancerous cells, at least one of these HPVs is considered at high risk.
Condylomas are linked to a higher risk of cancer, because the fact that a person has had them signifies that their immune system has difficulty defending their body against this family of viruses.
Numerous studies have proven this link, and for this reason, we recommend vaccination against HPV for people who have had genital warts or premalignant cells — See the HPV section under “Vaccination against HPV”.
