Can I be infected by HPV and not know it?

Genital warts (also called condylomata) are usually visible to the naked eye during an examination. They may be flat or look like a small cauliflower .Most HPV-induced lesions however on the skin and mucous membranes (from low-risk or high-risk HPVs), are not visible to the naked eye and are called subclinical (because they are not detectable during simple clinical examination).
