Other locations ?: Genital warts are transmitted from an infected source to a recipient through direct contact. If you have been exposed to genital warts from a sexual contact it might transfer from another site through scratching. Regular skin warts do not end up on genital skin. If you have a small growth it could easily be a skin tag or hemorrhoid remnant.
