Possible infection of hpv

Hello Doctor:

Two years ago I found out that I had a wart in my scrotum; the strange thing is that I haven´t had sexual relations or oral sex or other activities, I was a virgin.. Nowadays I still have the same wart it hasn´t get bigger or smaller, is there any possibility that I am infected of hpv?? what do I have to do take the wart away??

Even without sex, you could have gotten a wart from contact of your scrotum with an infected partner.  Thus, it is possible.  At the same time, I find it a little unlikely, particularly if you have truly had no exposure.  The scrotum is an unusual place for a wart and they typically go away without treatment in less than a year.  There are a number of dermatological conditions which can be mistaken for warts.  My advice would be to see a dermatologist.  He/she can provide you with a diagnosis and, if it is a wart, could likely easily help you get rid of it.  Please let us know what they say.  Hope this helps.  EWH
