Dear Michael

I gave and received oral sex from/to a woman about 12 months ago. About 6 months ago I noticed that I had 3 raised white growths on the glans of my penis; these were followed by one further raised growth on my foreskin and many other white patches that appear to be 'flat'. Could these be a symptom of HPV?

Kind regards

Mr C Scott

Answer
Genital warts. Genital warts may appear as flat lesions, small cauliflower-like bumps or tiny stem-like protrusions. In women, genital warts appear most commonly on the vulva but may also occur near the anus, on the cervix or in the vagina. In men, genital warts may appear on the penis and scrotum or around the anus. Genital warts rarely cause discomfort or pain.
The lesion on the glands do appear as wart like lesions. Thus, the lesions on the glans could be genital warts.
