Can HPV spread to other parts of the body?

Say if you had a wart on your hand at one point and time, can it spread to other areas of the body like, the genital and anal area, even feet, etc? And if so can that be severe or is it easy to take care of the wart?

    hpv doesnt spread like that...the warts one gets on the hands etc are not the same type as the genital warts,genital warts are STD's while the ones on ur hand are not.

    there are over 70 types of HPV viruses.the ones that cause genital warts are entirely different than those causing warts on hands and feet...so dont worry if u have a wart on your hand...it doesnt spread that way...
