No but . . .: You might have more to get rid of if you wait. Go see your family doctor for treatment. It's really not difficult. If you don't have health insurance, search online for low cost, even free options. I've listed some possibilities on one of the webpages on my blog.

Yes: You run the risk of the warts enlarging and spreading- requiring more extensive treatment.
