Hi Fredo.

Just a couple of more questions:

1) Does a man usually spread High Risk HPV without there being any visible signs on the man? In other words, is high risk hpv usually completely invisible for men and somehow just invisibly hidden in the skin?

2) If a man has a visible lesion, even if it is very hard to see, as in almost, but not quite invisible, or only barely visible under light, does that mean it is most likely low risk hpv?

Sorry if my questions are a little redundant lately. I'm just trying to get a final understanding and I really appreciate your help.

Thank you again.

Yes, and both men and women most often transmit HPV without any visible signs or symptoms.

2) If a man has a visible lesion, even if it is very hard to see, as in almost, but not quite invisible, or only barely visible under light, does that mean it is most likely low risk hpv?

If a man has a lesion diagnosed clinically, that will almost always involve low-risk HPV (but I don't know of a statistic that tells just how often other HPV types might be involved).

Hope this helps!

Fredo
