Anyway, you should find out for sure what you have. In the mean time, you can try giving yourself the vinegar test. I'm not sure how accurate the home version would be, but it's worth a try to maybe put your mind at ease. And if you can't tell anything, then you're no worse off than waiting for your doctor's appointment. (The test involves putting vinegar on it. If it turns white, it's a wart. Simple as that.)
BTW, the strains of HPV that cause cervical cancer aren't the ones that cause genital warts, so at least you don't have that to worry about. Also, the fact that you've had the same 'tags' for almost 3 years and a 'clear' partner doesn't make it sound like warts.
Good luck with the test, or whatever you find out from a new doc.
