Mole growths in groin and around genitals

Hi Dr,

I am a 31yo male.  In my late 20s I started growing what appeared to be normal dark moles, a few in size.  Over the course of time they have increased in size and number.  None seem to have characteristics of any melanoma or irregular shapes or multi-colors.  They do not burn, itch, or bleed.  Sometimes if I'm sweating there is extremely minor discomfort but nothing at all serious.  They don't seem to follow the ABCD chart of malignant growths however they are starting to concern me as a few of them have gotten quite large over time.

They are dark in color and raised as you can see from the photos below.  I will be seeing a doctor at the end of the week but I came across your site here while searching for some answers.

It looks like there are more tiny dots forming at the base of my penis on the opposite side, just a very small black dot or two, which it seems may grow over time as well like the ones you see below.  Any help will be appreciated.  Thank you.

Here are a few photos:

H.  Those are warts.  Your doctor will be able to remove them for you.  They are presumably sexually-transmitted (HPV) warts.  It's not possible to say when you got them or exactly how.  They can be frozen or burned off.  If you have a female sexual partner, she should get regular pelvic exams and Pap smears to be sure she doesn't have them.

Best.
