Customer Question

I'm a male. Not sure if you can or not !
JA: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?
Customer: No meds. Just a general question. Yes I saw a doctor 2.5 years ago about 2 small 'warts' that he wasn't sure were warts. Because they were really small and didn't look like a typical wart would look. He removed them and they've never come back. I took a full STD test after that and everything was negative. So, I'm not sure what I'm supposed to tell my future partners. I purposely avoided any sexual contact for basically a year and a half just to avoid the topic.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: No

Hello and thanks for trusting me to help you. I am a board certified consultant with over 30 years of experience.
Please provide more information regarding your question so I can help you in detail.

Well as you describe,unfortunately to say there is no specific test for HPV infection in men.

In healthy men with strong immune system,the virus kills within 18 months.

However in some cases,it can dormant for long period of time and when immune system gets weak then virus shows symptoms again.

So you need to maintain a strong immune system.

And do safe sex practices.
