I apologize for the late reply, Can you tell me the exact location of this growth?

Customer: replied 17 days ago.
It is on my pubic area
Expert:  Khizra Naz replied 17 days ago.

It's a wart, what you need is sexually transmiited infections tests. It's likely an STI leading to this wart. You need testing for this.

I am not sexually active since having twins and this appeared way after they were born

Yes, it can be benign but you need testing and a referral to sexual health clinic anyways.
