I have a small wart like growth in my pubic area where it joins with the groin. It has a thin base and is easily movable and shiny texture. What is it?

Wart vs skin tag: A doctor can help decide what it is -or you can upload a pic here on Healthtap and get a diagnosis. Either way, it sounds like it could easily be ablated -or destroyed. Ideally a doctor could do that by freezing it off with liquid nitrogen, or giving you medication to try chemical destruction. I would favor the first option, as it's in a sensitive area. These are common issues-don't worry too much ...Read more

I have recently noticed a small growth on my groin area. I don't know if it's a mole or a wart. Doesn't hurt to touch unless pulled.?

Don't pull on it: Needs seen. If your Dr can do cryotherapy (=freeze skin lesions), can see him/her. If not, ask local Urgent Care or see a Dermatologist to have it frozen off. This helps make sure you don't spread it to anyone else (and to discuss if any other testing in order). ...Read more

Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. It would be prudent to see your doctor. If you are sexually active you could have warts.
Do get HIV vaccine.

I have warts on genital groin and it bleed and itch sometimes could it be syphillis or hpv? I had one first and now there's more on the same area that

I have warts on genital groin and it bleed and itch sometimes could it be syphillis or hpv? I had one first and now there's more on the same area that

Doubt warts, see MD: The groin usually means where the thigh meets the abdomen. That's an unusual location for warts, and warts don't bleed or itch. So probably it's something else. (But HPV cause sall warts, so if you have warts, it's HPV.) Syphilis is much more rare and probably unlikely. Stop trying to guess or to figure it out on this or any other forum. See a doctor to learn what you have Good luck! ...Read more

Groin lump: This could be associated with various problems. If it itches, burns and hurts it could be a herpes lesion. It could be a genital wart but this is not usually painful. Very commonly also and not related to sexual transmission is an inflamed boil which could be painful and swollen.

My 3 year old son has what appears to be either warts or skin tags on his tummy, one under his eye and in the fold of his leg at his groin. What is it?

Warts vs. Skin Tags?: Skin tags and warts can have a similar appearance making it difficult to tell which one it is. Skin tags are benign outgrowths of skin and can easily be removed. Warts are caused by a viral infection of the skin and are contagious. Warts require treatment to prevent further spread to yourself and others. Your son should see his Pediatrician for the correct diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more
