This is another increasingly common STD. The chief symptom is warts in, on, or around the sex organs. A person can have warts without knowing it. The warts may go undetected because of their location, their small size or the fact that they can disappear on their own. However, if undetected and untreated, they tend to recur. Untreated genital warts are a serious problem because they may lead to pre-cancer or cancer of the cervix. Treatment is by means of a special solution that is painted on the warts, causing them to fall off. In stubborn cases cryosurgery (freezing) or electrocautery (destroying by means of an electric current) may be necessary.

Syphilis-This is a rare disease in Britain nowadays. The symptoms appear in stages, beginning with a painless sore at the exact place where the germs entered the body. The person may not notice the sore, which will eventually disappear, but the germs remain in the body and eventually produce second stage symptoms such as a red rash, mouth sores and an ill-all-over feeling. Most cases are treated by this stage, but if untreated, the disease may progress to a third stage, which can cause serious and permanent damage to the brain, spinal cord and other organs. Treatment is by means of antibiotics, usually given by injection.
