Customer Question
I (male, 17) am...

I (male, 17) am afraid that I have anal warts. What do I do?

Doctor's Assistant: Can you tell me about all the symptoms you've noticed (e.g. itching, rash, new birthmarks or moles)?

Very slight bleeding if irritated after bowel movement, and white bumps outside of anus, red bumps inside

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Does anything in particular seem to make the bumps better or worse?

I just noticed this two days ago, I thought it was a fissure or scab. They are simply there.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Not that I can think of

Honestly this doesn't look like warts to me

it just looks like normal tissue

You can go to a doctor and have him/her check them out but i am not worried about them

Did you get your HPV vaccine when you were 11?

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
It's hard to see in the picture, but there are bumps of some kind there. Maybe it is a scab of some kind from irritation. I think that I did have the vaccine.
Dermatologist: DocPhilMD, Doctor replied 3 months ago

I see it.

I know what you are talking about

I think it is normal rectal tissue

as you get older some pushes out

that is normal

the vaccine should protect you from most strains of HPV too

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
