Can you rip a genital wart off? Will it hurt?

In brief: Don't do it

It will hurt, it will bleed, and you are setting yourself up for infection.
One low cost test for a genital wart is to hold a vinegar soaked pad to it for 10 minutes and if it turns white it is a genital wart. A doctor can confirm the diagnosis and freeze it off.

In brief: Not recommended

Best to have it removed by a trained professional in a sterile environment.
