Skin tags, warts: "Fleshy" genital bumps suggests skin tags, not warts -- but warts certainly are possible. Hard to say whether it i safe to delay effective treatment for your anal warts -- the longer you wait, the more difficult surgical or laser treatment may be, along with small risk of progression to anal cancer. There are excellent STD physicians in Seoul; keep looking, e.g. at a university medical center.
