Thanks for choosing JustAnswer.

Genital warts look like flesh colored bumps. In men, genital warts can infect the urethra, penis, scrotum, and rectal area.The warts can appear as soft, raised masses with a surface that can be smooth or rough with many fingerlike projections (anal warts). Others may appear pearly, cauliflower-like, or rough with a slightly dark surface. Most lesions are raised, but some may be flat with only slight elevation above the skin surface. Infection with HPV (human papilloma virus) may be dormant or undetectable, with some lesions hidden by hair or in the inner aspect of the uncircumcised foreskin in males.

Also there is Molluscom Contagiosum which is caused by a virus as well that can be mistaken for genital warts.

Either way if you go to your doctor he/she can easily freeze or surgically remove these bumps. You will want them to be diagnosed soon for early treatment and to prevent the spread. You might have to have them removed a couple of times but eventually they will stop coming back on your skin (even though you'd still have the virus). These two things are both very common and easily taken care of.

I wish you the best of luck.
