I am 22 years old. I am a virgin but I found that I had a genital wart around my vagina. It started to look like a small bump and then developed to be a big wart. It is very painful and awful, and now I am stressed. I’m thinking of being single because I’m scared to tell anyone about this disease.

I have genital warts in my vaginal lips and it's growing so fast in cluster. I did home remedy but it didn't stop from growing and itching. I don’t feel comfortable. I am too worried now.

I'm a 51 year old man. I was diagnosed with genital warts when I was 19. Back then county care did not offer any treatment at all. They told me to just keep it clean and as dry as possible. The blemish clusters were the size of a ping pong ball around the base of the penis staying relatively dormant until after I turned 40. Then the clusters grew larger. Now it is 1 large clump softball size, and is enveloping my penis making it painful and awkward. I'm afraid to have them surgically removed because if it ends up being cancerous, it's been my experience that when they cut it open and expose it to air it spreads like wild fire. So if they miss even a tiny bit on the cellular level, I'm doomed. So either way it's bad, just that one is deadly.

I noticed my genital warts one day while showering. They grew so fast and I’ve been searching for the right doctor. I read articles after articles and I’m frightened. I’m going to the emergency room on Monday or Planned Parenthood if I can on Tuesday. Yeast infection has been terrible, I wake up and my panties have a yellow clumpy discharge.
