    Genital warts usually look similar to cauliflower. They are not smooth, they are kind of lumpy, and they do usually multiply. This does not look like a wart usually would, in my opinion. However, you can transfer warts from any other body part just by making skin-to-skin contact. It is not necessarily from sexual intercourse, is what I am getting at. To find out if it is a wart, try dabbing vinegar on it. If it turns white, it is a wart. If it does not, it still might be, but is far less likely. Easiest way to be sure is to have a doctor perform a culture/biopsy on it to see if it is HPV (the virus that causes warts, genital and otherwise) or not.

      I’ll definately try that thanks so much. I got STD tested last week and I was negative for everything so I’m clean on that aspect so the only thing that comes to my mind is genital warts and I’m terrified cause I’m young and don’t wanna be dealing with these kind of things ...

      Apple cider vinegar is the right type to try and use to expose a wart and usually after a week or so, the wart will harden up and flake away. You can put apple cider on some cotton over night to get faster results. The most valid option is to run a biopsy with your urologist as mentioned by Adam. Lastly, try cleaning hands before and after to provent further infection or irritations.

      If this is just a infection like a undeveloped pimple or blocked pore, Try frequent baths with with warm water and unscented soaps like dove. And drying or keeping the area dry all the time. I would recommend changing underwear frequently 2-3 times a day.

      All the best.

    Unfortunately there is not a male test for HPV (the virus which would cause warts) other than biopsy of the lesion, which your doctor may recommend. You would test negative for all other STDs, unless you had something else. There are penile brushing tests, however they are really only used in research.

    You should see a dermatologist and if he does does believe it is HPV (warts), don't freak out ... HPV is very common and the warts (low risk HPV) are treatable. After a period of time your body will suppress the virus and they usually go away. They do not always form in clusters, but as adam said, the cluster formation is very common.

    Keep us updated as well... and if your doctors confirms that this is a HPV warts, you may want to do some research on AHCC, which is a mushroom extract that enhances the immune system in your body to fight the virus. The benefit is more technical than this, but AHCC it widely researched and there is a clinical phase II study being done right now in the US that will wrap up this year which is testing it against HPV. Many men are also taking the supplement and I have read some success stories online.

      Thanks guys I will keep you updated after my next visit to the doctor next week. I’m praying it’s not genital warts but god forbid if it is, how will I ever be able to have sex ever again if it’s comtagious even if the warts are gone ??? I’m scared guys, I’m only 25 and plan on having a family at some point in the future and am terrified this will be a huge deal breaker ... but I’m just praying it isn’t this ...

      It will be okay.  If it is HPV, it won’t hurt your chances of having a family. If it is a wart, it should likely clear up. Once the warts clear up (whether on their own or through treatment) and don't come back for at least six months, it's generally safe to assume your HPV infection has cleared. In that case, there's no medical reason to tell future partners about your history, according to Dr. Handsfield an expert on HPV.

    Hey guys. I just went to the doctors today. In between the day I posted this post and today, the bump actually went down by a lot ! There’s a little sign where u can see where it was but it went away for the most part. I made another post about 2-3 weeks ago too about some bumps I had in my pubic area idk if u guys saw that but he did a chemical peel with acid on it and they went away now ! I was tested for STD’s and he told me I was clean for everything so I feel beyond relieved now. However what can be a cause for all these things if it’s not HPV or warts ? Cause I never had This issue in the past and I want to avoid it in the future.
