I discoverd a single raised wart about 3mm in diamitor of a dark pinkish colour, and its on the vagina area but closer to the anus. I showed a nurse who said it could likely be a boil. I had a feeling it was a wart, because when i was about 12yrs old, i had a few warts on my fingers that i got frozen off, which never returned, and it looked like one of those. So went to the doctor today, she said it was a wart, and froze it off for me. I was really shocked because i have been with my boyfriend now for 2.5years, and i have not had many sexual partners previously. My previous sexual experiances was with my ex b/f, who was a virgin and that was about 5years ago now.
So i asked my doctor if this is a wart like genital warts or like the warts you can get on your fingers when your younger, and she kind of wasnt making alot of sense. Basically i noticed this wart only last week. I am going to book myself in for a Pap Smear and a coloscopy. I have tried to do alot of research on the internet but i am confused about a few things.
1. Just because the wart is in the genital area, does it mean it is the genital warts virus or can it just be a wart but not related to the genital warts virus?
2. Iv read about something called hpv, im of the understanding that this is the virus that can cause genital warts?
3. What test determines if you have hpv or genital warts? Is that what the pap smear or the Colposcopy does?
4. Once my single wart has totally cleared up visually, and if i have future sexual partners, will i pass warts onto them even if i dont have any warts ever again, and if i do have hpv will i pass that on through unprotected sex?
