Hi there. At the outset, your Genital warts need be addressed. In women, HPV (depending on the types) virus (human papilloma virus) does have a greater propensity to lead to genital/uterine cancers. Having said that, this does not happen overnight. So be prudent..get yourself & your partner 'treated' & fix a dermatologist / venereologist appointment asap in your region. If careful, one may try using topical wart creams like "podophyllotoxin" or "5% 5 Fluorouracil" as per the different recommendations & precautions that your local pharmacist would be happy to explain once you show him a copy of this transcript. As for the lump & 'hole' , it is not likely to be any cancer. it is more likely to be a 'pilonidal' sinus or 'perianal abscess' or a 'hemorrhoid'. Please see a general surgeon & get it attended to. Please do practice safe sex & for the interim till this is cleared, i strongly recommend 'abstinence' in your cases. Ensure both partners' are treated & should you have had other partners' that you have associated with in the past checked & treated as well. Cheers & Good Luck!
