Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries
sometimes a false negative result can happen.
Do you have a picture of the wart?
no. i don't know how to do it. I had a swab with a private dr. and he sent the results back . They came back negative and i saw my own dr. He looked and said it was genital warts. He is not a specialist but could it be possible he diagnosed wrong.
Yes, the most common cause of warts in the genital area is human papilloma virus.
No what I am saying is because he is a Gp and not a specialist could his diagnosis be wrong? The swab test was negative.
Actually, any person who is a doctor, simple doctor, can diagnose a wart.
Do not require a specialist for that
It is very common.
I do not know why the specialist did not pick it up.
A wart has a very typical appearance.
Could it not be a wart that is not contagious.
Warts are usually contagious
So I would not say it is not contagious.
But the results came back negative for all PPV. I went privately and they said their testing is the best. Is it at all possible that my wart was not caused by sexual activity with the other person. I did not penetrate.
Skin to skin contact can also cause transmission of warts.
But warts that are located in the genital area i.e. in the penis or scrotum etc are usually sexually transmitted
I am going to a GUM clinic on Monday for a 2nd opinion. Do you think I will definitely have genital warts or is there any chance at all that it is a non infectious wart.
There is a chance that it is non infectious wart.
But the chances of that happening are very less.
Just want to be honest with you.
Anymore questions that you have for me?
Will they be able to tell straight away.
Yes they will usually be able to tell straightaway.
The reason there is confusion here is that you can not to a swab test to identify a wart or the strain of the wart.
The wart must be removed and sent to the lab, or a piece of the lesion, not a swab, must be sent to the lab.See this link.
Tere is some importance to accurate diagnosis if you are sexually active: some strains are cancer producing, some are not.

Please click a positive rating...this is how we are paid.
If this is positive my life is done. I have let down my loved partner. Why would these results come back negative wrongly and why would the people I paid let me down.
I don't have a picture,doctor. But the doctor took something off. The people who I went to were private people called just to know . I paid for the service and it took a long time to get the results. I have contacted them and am very disappointed as I was so relieved and now i am back to square one. They are reputable and are saying the test should not have given false result.
