Yes, but tolerable: Your dr. Will advise. Ask if local anesthesia by topical anesthetic cream &/or injection can be used. Sometimes general anesthesia can be considered. However must be removed. In future please insist on partner using a condom until ur in a monogamous relationship with partner who is hpv free. Discuss hpv vaccine with your dr.
