Warts is a clinical term referring to swelling on the skin or mucous membranes caused by the HPV human papillomavirus. This virus has been on a rise in recent years. This leads us in the need to investigate the factors associated with the prevention and appearance of warts in both sexes. The present study aims to study any demographic and psychological factors that may be related to the prevention and appearance of the warts in both sexes. In order to carry out this study, questionnaires were prepared, supplemented by individuals residing in both Attica and the rest of Greece. The study as well as the statistical analysis carried out were based on categorical and comprehensible scales, on the basis of which conclusions could be drawn for the various factors related to the prevention and appearance of the virus. This study shows that women have more knowledge as regards warts, unlike men. Similarly, there is a situation regarding prevention as women appear to be in control of any sexually transmitted diseases, while men do not know how to prevent them. Finally, people who suffer from both sexes notice that their daily lives are not affected by their illness and inform their subsequent companions about it.
