Over the past 6-7 years, I've had these little bumps appear on my scrotum that look like pimples, I get maybe 1-2 a year. They don't go away unless I freeze them off. I don't know if they are warts or something else. I have an appointment with a urologist on June 27th but I called and asked how much they are going to charge me and they want $195 out of pocket just to examine me. I don't have that kind of money laying around so I'm hoping someone here can help.
I seem to be getting misdiagnoses from doctors. When I first started getting these bumps about 6-7 years ago, the doctor who froze them off thought it was molluscum contagiosum. Then when I saw another doctor a few years later he said it was a comedone. A doctor after that said it was a wart. That's three different diagnoses from three different doctors.
If it is a wart, does that mean I have HPV? My girlfriend who I've had sex with about 15 times is 24 years old so should I tell her I have HPV and she should get the HPV vaccination? I haven't seen any of these bumps appear on her yet.
I posted a high-res picture of it at the link below:
