I think I have genital warts and not sure how to go about i I have two small wart looking lumps on my penis.
JA: How long have you had the lump? Is it hard or soft?
Customer: Over 6 months I think, it is soft
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the Doctor should know?
Customer: no

Hello. I'm Dr Chip

One on

One on right side too

Got it--hold on please

Customer: replied 11 days ago.
Ok

Neither of those looks like a genital wart

They're both benign cysts from blocked pores and not any infection or STD

If they bother you a dermatologist can get rid of them with a CO2 laser

Oh really? How certain of that would you be and is there different kinds of treatment?

I'm sure--I've seen many of these as well as genital warts

The other option would be liquid nitrogen freezing

How do I go about getting rid of them? As I really want them gone

You'd need to see a dermatologist for that

Customer: replied 11 days ago.
How would I have gotten them?

They just happen--there's no specific trigger for them

Customer: replied 11 days ago.
I have a smaller type on further down the penis which you can hardly see I take it that would be the same thing?

Yes
