HPV Wart Tip of Penis

Hey there, I have a quick question regarding something I spotted on the tip of my penis recently. Approximately 3 to 4 weeks ago I noticed a patch of skin pigmentation on the tip of my penis . It hasn't itched to hurt or anything. However Idid notice that at certain angles depending on how you look at it there is a slightly raised bump on the edge of it. I say certain angles because if I look at it a certain way it's almost like there's nothing there, but if I look at it a different way it looks like there might be A raised bump there. This brings me to my question, at what rate do genital warts grow, because this so-called raised bump hasn't increase really in size in the last 2-3 weeks. That's based on looking at it at that certain angle. If i spread the skin,  I don't really see any raised bump, it's just that one certain angle I looked at it that I see it. Could this be just something I have noticed for the first time? I'd appreciate any response thank you

I, ive never seen any studies on wart growth rates but i believe it is somewhat noticable so from what your describing would not suggest hpv wart,

So it's safe to say that if this so-called spot doesn't grow in the next week or two and then it's not a wart?

Is there anyone on this forum that would have more insight to it?

Okay thanks, last question Dave, 3-4 weeks ago I would say I would have to get close w the eye or take a picture to see this bump. Now from the right angle I can see it w just bending over a little bit and getting a closer look. Is that significant growth? Or something that can be overlooked? I just feel like I would have recognized some thing like this in my last 10 years...
