I am a 29 year old male and I do not have health insurance

This answer was rated:

I am a 29 year old male and I do not have health insurance or a ton of money. I believe I have genital warts. What are my options to remove them, and if I have to see a docter, what kind? An estimated cost for treatment? Thanks
Hello. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing Internal Medicine Physician. Excellent service is my goal.
Thanks for this question
You have a few options
1)acid application (probably the cheapest)
2)cryo (liquid nitrogen freezing)
3)surgical removal
I would probably see a dermatologist and have them apply acid therapy to them.
this will be the cheapest. Probably 500 dollars total.
I hope this helps. If you have more questions, just reply. :)

I know they have the freezing kit they sell at the store for warts. Is that something I could buy and do it myself?

No, I wouldn't recommend that.
it is used for plantar and extremity warts.
Plus, it is not very effective.
It won't treat genital warts effectively
