Warts? HPV?


I've just noticed a really small bump by the side of my urethra on my penis. It is skin colored and can be difficult to spot, varying on the size of my penis. If this is a wart, how long will it take for it to grow larger in size? Does it help applying vinegar to kill it off, or do I have to consult with a doctor to get a cream?

I will try to upload photos for you to see.

do not apply vinegar to your delicate genital skin!! Acids will burn the skin.

this actually sounds completely normal.

If you are concerned, follow up with your provider.

have you had your 3 shot hpv series?

I will stay away from the vinegar.

Is it normal to have bumps like this by the urethra like I have? What could it be if not a wart?

Unfortunately I have not had the vaccine.
