See your Dr: Genital warts are easy for a doctor to identify. Syphilis also has an easily recognizable lesion and very identifiable spirochete organisms in early phase and simple vdrl blood test from then on. Hope you have neither.

Professional exam: Although syphilis can cause wart-like growths, this is rare; genital warts are hundreds of times more common. But the only way to be sure is professional examination. Good luck!
