3 weeks ago I found a bump in my pubic region right above my penis and thought it was a ingrown hair and thought nothing of it. I trimmed up and found out I actually have more then 1. There is probably 3 in my pubic region and 6-7 on the left base of the shaft that are brownish in color and also had a open sore kinda looking thing next to them. I also have one in the pubic region that has a white circle pimplish look on the top of it. The sore isnt there anymore its just a red spot kinda raised. I have no itching/pain in my groin region, so its kind of scary as to what it is. I went in to the doctors and spoke to a nurse who said its warts without even looking at it and scheduled me with a doctor for cauterazation? What do you all think?
Also I have been reading for a week straight about it stressing like hell and cant believe this happened to me, but I am wondering that after the warts get removed is the HPV genital warts contagious and can your body kick it after a year or two? And after cauterazation do they ever return? I have been trying to boost my immune system my eating better this week and I plan to for a long time, lifestyle change.
