i have a 2 yr old son who i recently discoved has a wart under his foreskin. i've been doing research and everything is leading to hpv. i took him to see a urologist and he recomended that i have him circumcised. i'm worried that it might be from hpv but have no idea how he got it, his father and i and grandparent's are the on;y caregivers, he doesn't go to day care or a sitter or preschool, so i'm not really worried about the sexual abuse factor, but i have no other idea how he has one down there...help me please.
Are you sure it is a wart? All warts, even the ones on your hands and feet are caused by a strain of HPV. Of course not all bumps on a penis are warts. Might be worth consulting a dermatologist for a diagnosis and treatment options.
