Is this a genital wart/STD to be worried about?

Posted , 3 users are following.

I had a small bump on my penis the past couple of days. I was unsure of whether or not it was a pimple or a bump. It has gone down each day. It does not really hurt and I have no pain during urination. I don’t know if this is a genital wart or just a bump due to a skin infection. I have pictures below. Thanks.

    Hey, 

    I can not see anything abnormal from your post.

    If you think you have genital warts, see a health professional as they may need to be treated. It is possible to have more than one STI at a time, so if you think you have warts, it is a good idea to have a check-up.You can make an appointment at your local sexual health or genitourinary medicine (GUM) clinic.

    I do not think that is a genital warts and you can get HPV vaccination after you go to see the doctor and confirm that is NOT genital warts.

    I hope you will be fine. 

    Best,

      Thank you. The thing is, I’ve had the Gardisil vaccination, but I’m unsure if I got all 3 shots... I hope it’s not anything STI related. I’ve been tested about 3 months ago and had an HIV test about 5 months ago. All negative.

      You are very welcome. 

      Go to see the doctor and discuss with your vaccination time. They will give you the answer.

      Also, if you already got the vaccination, then there is no need to be afraid. (BTW i checked again your pics and really did not see anything abnormal. so, relax)

      As you said you already did the tested over 3 month and all of the result came back as negative. 

      so it is count as conclusive. 

      Move on to your life and hope you all the best. 

      If anything else i can help please just let me know. 

      Best,

      Hugo

      I got the vaccination back in 2013-2014, so I should still be good right? And thank you for your help. I’m a hypochondriac a lot of times, so I’m always very careful about STDs. Especially since I have a girlfriend. Thanks again.

      You are very welcome.The CDC recommends people receive the second HPV dose one to two months after the first, and receive the third dose six months after the first.But studies suggest that, even if people don't strictly adhere to this schedule (and end up receiving the second and third doses many months later) the vaccine may still be effective.

      But it is still better that you can chat with your doctor and see if you need one more shot because you did your vaccination in 2013-1014(almost 4 years ago). it is quite long time and if you said you did not finish the last shot, I think it is better to get the last does. Having one dose may give a person some protection against the virus strains but three doses will probably help the protection last longer.

      Also, i am really sorry to here that you suffered hypochondriac, but you already did very good on sexual health way. Do not think too much because you are very well.

      There are a lot of things that you will find interesting in your life including sex, try your best to enjoy them.

      Keep health and all the best.

      I got all 3 shots in that span from 2013-2014. Thanks so much. I love my girlfriend dearly and I care about her health. Mine too of course, but I just wanted to make sure that it wasn’t anything to be scared about.

      I totally understand. 

      But you should know there is nothing 100% sure. The only thing we can do is try our best to avoid as much damage as we could, protect  yourself and protect the people who we loved, which you already did very very good.wink

      Keep being happy and all the best for you and your girlfriend. 

      Best,
