sandy.s728 - Thanks for coming back, and we understood your ramblings just fine.

Genital warts in men are caused by the HPV virus. HPV types 6 and 11 cause the majority of genital warts.

At this point, it's really not clear what your boyfriend has. It may be a genital wart, it may not be. It definitely needs to be checked and he may also want to have it biopsied.

Men can develop skin tags in the genital area, which are benign and are not related to an STD, and are typically removed by a dermatologist. The dermatologist most likely will also examine him to see if he may have skin cancer as well. Here's a link for self-examination information: http://www.skincancer.org/Self-Examination/

I know the two of you are dealing with a lot right now and I hope you will do your best to not panic and stay focused on getting the care that you need and deserve. Ask the questions you need to ask, and if you are not satisfied with the way you are treated by any doctor then get another opinion from another doctor until you are satisfied. We, of course, are here for you too. Good luck! Pat
