Avatar n tn My laser treatment - surgery - is planned for January. Has anyone had laser surgery for genital warts removal before? I am worried about the scarring and the recovery part of the surgery. My Dr. said I would be in bed for about 15 days following the surgery, and that it would take about 1 month to heal completely. I've heard about horror stories... bad scarring... tissue sticking together... skin not being the same afterwards, and complicated intercourse following the surgery.

Avatar n tn Other surgical methods--electrocautery, surgery itself--are more or less the same as laser in speed, but just as expensive. Warts themselves do not itch. You might have irritation from the treatment, or something else. Warts also do not cause discharge or odor; those are clues to other vaginal infections.
Avatar n tn Small warts can be removed by freezing (cryosurgery), burning (electrocautery), or laser treatment. Surgery is occasionally used to remove large warts that have not responded to other treatment.'

Avatar m tn I've had my fair share of random bar hook ups that I am now ashamed of because I think I have genital warts. I always used condoms except for the guys that I've known. I think back in december I got a bump on my vulva that I just assumed was a razor burn at the time. Months have gone by and I've noticed more bumps. Probably around 12 or so down there now. and there's 2 that are kind of bigger than a pimple that I'm really concerned about.
Avatar m tn Dear Doctor Handsfield, I found out I had genital warts about a year and a half ago. I originally was prescribed Veragen, but that didn’t do much. In December I finally got laser surgery done. In January when they healed I thought I saw two small warts growing back so I got prescription of Aldara. I used the cream, and so far everything is looking good. I’ve been wart free for two months now. Here are my questions: 1.
Avatar f tn Hi, would like to know how effective is podopyllum resin 20% in treating Ano-genital warts
Avatar n tn Unless warts are very large and uncomfortable, surgical removal or aggressive laser surgery to remove the warts is generally avoided. Several treatment sessions are usually required. Other treatments your doctor may use can be use of some immune-stimulator, injections of candida (yeast) or injections of an antibiotic bleomycin (used in cancer therapy). It should be noted that since warts are caused by a virus, they may recur following attempts at surgical removal.
Avatar n tn Freezing (cryotherapy or liquid nitrogen therapy); canthardin; electrodissection and curettage and laser surgery are the treatment options available.'

5856747 tn?1403352282 What are Genital Warts? Like all warts that appear on the human body from time to time, genital warts are a viral skin invasion caused by a sub-specious of the human papillomavirus (HPV) Genital warts are invariable described as a "sexually transmitted disease." However, it has been my certain experience as a practicing medical doctor that this is not invariable the case. Genital warts can occur in non-sexually active monogamous adults. How are Genital warts diagnosed?

Avatar n tn 4 months later I found a wart inside my urethra as deep as 1/3 inch and it is about 1 inch in diameter, and then got it removed by laser. Since then I used imiquimod for 4 months and never see any warts again even I tested with vinegar.
Avatar m tn In Dec 2009, I was diagnosed with CIN3 and underwent laser surgery for cervical lesions. Luckily, although the area of the lesion was quite large, it was not deep and the follow-up colposcopy showed that I was free from any precancerous cells. Since about Apr 2011, my husband has complained of what we thought were "skin tags" around and on his penis. Regardless, he did not visit a doctor and we continued to have unprotected sex throughout that time.
Avatar f tn Am scheduled for CO2 laser vaporization of both vulvar and anal genital warts and I was wondering if anyone can tell me what to expect, especially postoperatively?
Avatar n tn I am really worried.. I think it could be Penile Carcinoma instead of warts. I am really tensed now.
Avatar n tn I recently had a lesion removed from my penis, which test results say was a genital wart. I had this lesion (wart) for almost 15 years. It first appeared as though it was an in-grown hair. I messed with it and it popped and indeed a fairly long hair was removed, but the "skin tag" never went away and just recently became bothersome, so I had it removed. I have not had sexual relations with anyone but my wife for 28 years.
Avatar m tn Unless warts are very large and uncomfortable, surgical removal or aggressive laser surgery to remove the warts is generally avoided. In any case you should not attempt to remove a wart yourself by cutting, tearing, picking, or any other method. You should consult a doctor for a proper diagnosis and treatment. Hope it helps.
Avatar m tn Well anyways went to planned parenthood here in town and the nurse said it was a genital wart and the red little bumps were other warts that may form or wont form but it doesn't look like anything i saw in pictures for genital warts because it is really thin and flat and not cauliflower shaped. The nurse told me about treatments and recommended and aldara type cream she said it was the best way to boost my immune system. So i went to a urologist and got a second opinion.
Avatar n tn 26YO F diagnosed with GW in July 06. Laser surgery in Oct 06. Last outbreak was Jan 07 (TCA got rid of it). Free of warts since then (and pap was normal). Completed gardasil injections in Apr 07. During this time I was not sexually active. I began having sex with a new partner in May 07 (I did disclose my HPV status). There were a few times recently that I bled after sex (and it looked like a small paper cut at the opening of my vagina). I began taking birth control about 3 weeks ago.
Avatar n tn Hi, Genital warts, sometimes called venereal warts, are actually a common type of sexually transmitted disease (STD). As the name suggests, these warts affect the moist tissues of the genital area. Genital warts are typically flesh- or gray-colored and can be either raised or flat. They vary in size from too small to spot with the naked eye to large, uneven, cauliflower-like clusters. In men, genital warts can grow on the tip or shaft of the penis, the anus, or the scrotum.
Avatar m tn How can I get rid of my genital warts at home? I read that you can use apple cider, is this true? Has anyone used an effective method? I seriously cannot take this anymore. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Avatar n tn 25 year old male. Genital warts had somehow spread to my anus. Awful and embarrassing. I tried Veregen but all it did was explode the number of perianal warts. The packaging says it could increase their number, but I really wasn't ready for that. It went from 4 or 5, to by my new doctor's count, more than 20. So we tried cryotherapy and a Rx of Aldara.
Avatar m tn I ignored it for a few days, but it got to me so I went to a walk in clinic that said it was mostly likely genital warts caused by HPV. They then scheduled an appointment for me with a urologist last wednesday. For the next few days I examined my urethra regularly and they did not really change. On tuesday I began noticing that my penis and testicles were really warm. This has continued and sometimes I get a really hot fever sensation for a while. My crotch area just constantly feels warm.
Avatar n tn I'm going to get tested, but what is the likelihood that they are genital warts, based on the information I've given? Anything else you want to know, please tell me.
