    Do I have genital warts?
    oz_zo posted:
    For some time now I've have these bumps, or cluster at the base of my penis and have been told by my doctor it's just an ingrown hair, but I'm wondering if it may be genital warts.

    Those little bumps are hair focicles (spelling may be off). A lot of guys have them. They're close to the pubs, right? These are harmless. They are places where hair grows. If those bumps are flat and black, then it could be HPV (genital warts).

    But from what you describe, it isn't.

    You're okay, dude.

    Trust yourself. Ask the doc to do a biopsy.

    I had 2 doctors tell me everything looked fine. I had to have both of them do a biopsy. Mine are warts.

    Are yours going away? Ingrown hairs go away. Are they multiplying?
