I have Hpv. 33 years old and have had a wart in the middle

Customer Question

I have Hpv. 33 years old and have had a wart in the middle of my pubic region. What are the odds that is verrucous carcinoma. They've excised it once a few years back but it slowly came back and I just never bothered to get it removed again. It's black but flaky on top and I can peel bits of it off.

I would have this removed.
Melanoma is what needs to be ruled out.
Yes it can be a pigmented wart.
But make sure.
OK, so that is an initial answer….
