If I get a skin biopsy of the scrotal warts (my uro said theyweren't) will it specifically give what strains I have? If I askfor the details ofstrain?

If I get a skin biopsy of the scrotal warts (my uro said theyweren't) will it specifically give what strains I have? If I askfor the details ofstrain?

See below: Routine biopsy and pathological exam usually just identifies the nature (histology) of the skin lesion and whether it is a genital wart or other type of benign lesion. Submitting the specimen for viral typing is not routinely done and usually involves sending the specimen out to a special reference lab that performs that type of service and likely costly. Can be done but should verify with MD. ...Read more

If a biopsy of my scrotal warts are done, can it show all the hpv strains that I'm infected with? As it is also skin?

If a biopsy of my scrotal warts are done, can it show all the hpv strains that I'm infected with? As it is also skin?

Here are some...: Biopsy (usually with excision) only shows microscopic tissue features indicating or suggesting if such lesion is HPV-related, but will not "normally" do special tests to verify which types you may have since the value of its use in practical application is too low.

If you touch the warts on scrotum and then touch your anus, will it transmit? Theoritical and practical risks? Please help

If you touch the warts on scrotum and then touch your anus, will it transmit? Theoritical and practical risks? Please help

Low risk: Anal warts are most common in people who have had receptive anal sex, but sometimes appear in men or women with no anal sexual exposure. It is not known how often this results from touching like you describe, or from migration of the virus along the skin to the anal area. Probably some of each. Best to avoid contacting your anal area after finger contact with your warts, either way is low risk. ...Read more

I have 3 lesions on scrotum believed to be warts. Next visit to uro in 2 weeks. Am I guaranteed penile cancer. Uncircumsized but no phimosis and clean?

I have 3 lesions on scrotum believed to be warts. Next visit to uro in 2 weeks. Am I guaranteed penile cancer. Uncircumsized but no phimosis and clean?

No: There are no such guarantees in life. Our world is many shades of gray, not black or white. Hopefully, a person will never get penile cancer... but that means he has to die of something else, because all lives are finite on this Earth. Conversely, if a guy doesn't die of something else, he will die from penis cancer (note that this saying can apply to every disease known to man). ...Read more

Can hand warts transmit to genitals. I'm a virgin and only had two encounters of handjobs. But have 3 warts on scrotum. And one pigmented please help!!

Can hand warts transmit to genitals. I'm a virgin and only had two encounters of handjobs. But have 3 warts on scrotum. And one pigmented please help!!

Probably not warts: Hand warts almost never are transmitted to the genitals. And if you had warts from the handjobs, they would be at the sites of maximum friction during sex, i.e. on your penis, not the scrotum. There are many kinds of skin bumps other than warts, and most bumps on the scrotum are not genital warts. Do not self diagnose; see a doctor. ...Read more

Have 3 warts on scrotum. But used condoms at all times. What are my risks of penile cancer? Uncircumsised. Can biopsy serotyping tell what strain? Help!

Have 3 warts on scrotum. But used condoms at all times. What are my risks of penile cancer? Uncircumsised. Can biopsy serotyping tell what strain? Help!

Hard to say: Condoms can reduce but not prevent the spread of HPV. The wart strains are also not known to trigger cancer.However, the contacts involved in getting one strain can also give you the other strains that are. You can have specific serum studies done to see what strains your body has developed antibodies to. Most are at very low risk. ...Read more

If you touch the genital warts on scrotum and put your ur hand in your mouth. Will you get oral hpv? Possibility? Scared!!

If you touch the genital warts on scrotum and put your ur hand in your mouth. Will you get oral hpv? Possibility? Scared!!

Possible?: Sure, many things are possible in life. That is one of the main reasons to remain monogamous... meaning to have very few sexual partners in one's lifetime. That way, a couple can do pretty much anything they want to do, and still have a low exposure to various germs. In life, if one is a worrier, DON'T do the risky stuff. It's really that simple. ...Read more

I have psoriasis. And also 3 warts under my scrotum. If I have psoriasis and have not taken meds, will my body clear hpv? My uro said they weren't warts

Genital warts: Having psoriasis should not impair your immune system's ability to clear HPV. There are many causes of skin bumps other than warts, and if your urologist is confident the ones under your scrotum are something else, probably s/he is correct. But you could see a dermatologist if you remain uncertain. ...Read more
