    Husband HPV after married 25 years
    An_258219 posted:
    This is my story. First marriages for me/husband. Married at 30/he at 36. Needless to say there were a few relationships before our marriage. One year into marriage he had warts cut off of penis that I had known about since our beginning. Thought it was over. Didnt know it was HPV until pathology report came back. One- two years later it came back and was once again cut off. I was advised to continue regular Pap smears and vigilance. Have had no problems in 25 year relationship. I've never had warts before or after marriage. Husband has just had a wart/ mole cut off below belly button- came back HPV?? Both of us as well as doctor blown away because in a strange location. Makes me question?? But really believe my husband that he hasn't been with someone else. Just saying, strange things happen but he also has a pen size spot on penis ( just like the one from 25 yrs ago) getting cut off again. I think these don't get completely removed and are slow growers because why would it show up in a weird location and so many years after initial removal? Am trying to research websites for more info. Appreciate feedback.

    This isn't a weird location and it's not unusual that the virus hasn't gone away and remained dormant for a number of years.
