Trying to determine if single bump near genitals is genital wart
Recently I spotted a single bump near my genitals in the pubic area and am trying to determine if it is a genital wart. I'm not sure how long it has been there. Naturally I tried to pop it although it didn't seem to look like a pimple. Clear fluid and very little blood came out and the bump decreased in size significantly but not all the way to nothing. About two to three hours later I checked it again and the bump increased to its original size. What could this be? I went to a Doctor who thinks it is a genital wart. My understanding is you can't pop a genital wart and since I could reduce the size of the bump does this rule it out? Thank you for your time.
Of course I can't say for sure without seeing it, but the description and location both point against it's being a wart. It may well be a blocked follicle, much more common in this area. My advice is to leave it alone and to consult a doctor who is more secure in diagnosing genital warts, and who can treat it as well if it is.
I have had this small bump on the inside of my thigh for a while now. It gets slightly irratated because my underwear band will rub against it. It is sensitive to the touch and it is soft. They have always just been pink. I havent thought much about them until I started having sex with my boyfriend. Now I have noticed they have duplicated. I now have 2 and they are both on the same side. The other side doesnt have anything on them. Should I be concerned that I might be giving my boyfriend genital warts?
