Basically, can a genital wart show up on penis one week after a sexual encounter?  is that possible?  I have no major health or immunity issues.

I noticed I had this bump near one of my vagina lips. It's been there since January of 2012 and it doesn't itch, grow, or shrink. Is it a genital wart?

I noticed I had this bump near one of my vagina lips. It's been there since January of 2012 and it doesn't itch, grow, or shrink. Is it a genital wart?

Doubtful: Since it has been there that long and hasn't grown, others haven't appeared...it is unlikely that it is a genital wart. However, a diagnosis like this can only be made with any confidence based on a physical exam/inspection of the lesion (and possibly a biopsy). Have your doctor check it to be sure. ...Read more

If you have one type of HPV virus eg. Plantar wart, can it change into another eg. Genital wart?
