Wart near Anus - Need advice on removal


I have a wart in the discreet  area between my anus and scrotum.

This wart has been present for 4 years. I believe it is a generic wart. It never has "Outbreaks" and has been present the entire time.   Due to the area that its located in always brings up the STD/HPV possibiltiy.

It looks just like : http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/images/ency/fullsize/19709.jpg

I tried the following treatments with no luck:
1) Vinegar
2) Salicidc Acid
3) Herbal treatments
4) Electronic treatment from warterbater.com (too painful!)
5) Duct Tape (gets moist and slides off)
6) OTC Freeze kits

The wart grow much faster than I can "chip away".

Ive went to 3 separate doctors to try and resolve this issue but no one can help either.

Doctor 1) Froze the wart twice. It did not budge.
Doctor 2) Prescribed Aldara. It did not help.
Doctor 3) Just told me to keep applying Salicidic acid. month.

None of the above helped. I'm in a really bad situation.

Ive developed so much anxiety based on the location that it gets harder and harder to treat.

Are there any other methods I can try to remove this?

Are there any specialized clinics in NYC where I can pay CASH and get it removed?

Im at a lost - and really need some advice. Thank you!

Warts are  viral in nature and they can come and go depending on the body’s immune system defenses.  Other treatments for warts on the skin are burning the wart, cutting out the wart or removing the wart with a laser. These treatments are stronger and they may also leave a scar. They are normally done in warts that have not cleared up with other treatments. Talk to your doctor about which treatment is best for you.

Take care and regards.
