STI/STD Scare! (genital warts?)

On the bottom shaft of my penis i have a small wart like bump, darker then skin color. it doesnt seem to pop or even hurt, i didnt know it was there til i felt it myself, it's been there for a while hasnt changed much. im guessing its prolly a result of the rough shaving? maybe its an old in grown hair? im confused. i'm going to get checked for the hell of it in a week or so. was just wondering, i can post a picture if need be. a few months ago it hurt during intercourse, but im guessing that was because i masturbated 4 times that day and had sex a few times as well.

should i be worried?

Re: STI/STD Scare! (genital warts?)

I don't think you should be worried (over 70% of US males are now infected with the hpv virus), but I do think you should get it checked out.

If it's an hpv-related wart, the doctor can burn or freeze it off, and also remove any future warts which might appear, until your own immune system manages to suppress the virus that's causing them (this usually happens within eighteen months).

On the other hand, it could just be an ingrown hair or something, but I still think you should get it checked out.

Good luck.
