    Warts around genital area. PLEASE HELP!!
    An_248493 posted:
    I have had a couple warts on my knee before and they are gone now, but i recently found one on my inner thigh right next to my vagina. Does this mean I have genital warts or is it just a wart? I remember having one in the same spot about 6 or 7 years ago. I am a virgin.

    And also, If i do have any sexual contact could this spread?

    Hi Anon -

    I am sorry that It is difficult to guess what's going on without an exam, please see your doctor to have this evaluated and diagnosed properly.

    In the meantime, this information may be helpful -

    IF it is genital warts, yes, it can be spread by sexual contact.

    Hoping you find answers soon,
