DO genital warts usually only effect one portion of the penis? I have had these bumps for about a year and half on one side only and have never gone away or spread anywhere. They are directly below where the head turns into the shaft. I went to a Urologist today and he confirmed they were genital warts just by looking at them, no tests or anything so just curious.

Thanks for posting your query.

Genital warts may remain localized to one part of external genitalia or may spread. In some patients they may disappear on their own with time.

Since your urologist has confirmed it on examination, they need to be treated properly.

There are many topical treatments available for genital warts and these include podophyllium resin, podofilox, 5-Fluorouracil and Imiquimod (Aldara) cream. However these creams should be used only after consulting a dermatologist and can be used at home.

Other treatment options include electrical cautery, surgical removal, good health.
