I have bump on my skin right between the bottom penile shaft

Customer Question

Hello I have brown bump on my skin right between the bottom penile shaft and top of my scrotum and I am worried whether it could be a mole or a wart. It seems to have a little piece of hair coming out of it and it has been there for about a year now I was going to see a doctor about it soon but want to see if anyone here could help me. I have a picture that I can show of a close up on the area. It is slightly raised and brown. A little darker than my skin color.

I added pictures as well.. They appear lighter on camera than how they look in real life.

It looks like genial warts. You should see a dermatologist so that you can apply prescription creams at home or the doctor can surgically remove or freeze off the warts. You should also have HPV vaccination.

Why is it only one of them and not several like I thought when you get them it would be many of them ? I will go to a doctor soon about this. Will prescription creams remove them ? will they come back ? And how can a vaccination help if I already got warts. I am confused to know if I have warts does that mean I have HPV ? And also I think my girlfriend is the one who gave it to me because she recently had a abnormal pap smear.

Other possibilities are lichen planus, lichen nitidis, and syringomas (rare). All are benign. You should see a dermatologist to have a biopsy to determine the diagnosis.

What makes you think Warts and not a Mole ? it has been there for over a year now and hasn't grown or spead. Its soft not hard not painful.
Expert:  khagihara replied 1 year ago.

It doesn't seem to be warts according to your explanation.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Wait it does or doesnt' ? Because you just told me at first you thought i was genital warts.... Which part of my explanation doesn't make it seem that way ? I tried putting vinegar on it and it didnt turn white but Im not sure if i did the test right. I am going to try to see a doctor next week but I just wanted to hear what you thought. This bump started growing after I shaved on time like a year ago it grew in size along with my hair when it came in I thought it could be a ingrown hair for that reason but the problem is its been a year and its still here.
