hi i am a 32 year old male with hpv warts. i was searching for this topic and you mention that there is no studies linking infecting your self through masturbation. Well it seems to me like that is what is likely causing my infection to spread . I recently started getting a few warts on my penis and i am freaked out now i dont want to even touch my penis. i started out with one small wart on the head of my penis then a second one but it went away. and recently i have been masturbating more often cause i am out of a relationship . and i now have about four more new ones on my shaft and on the head of my penis. It seems that if i irritate my penis it makes my penis weak therfore the disease spreading to the weak part of my penis. i dont know it is my theory . how ever i need help i want to find a local specialist that can remove my warts. anyone that you can recomend or a website to where i can find specialists DR.'s on HPV. I feel horrible.

FYI for anyone interested, the discussion referenced above is found at http://www.ashastd.org/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=431

We don't have referrals to healthcare providers who specialize in HPV per se, but urologists or dermatologists are often good choices for men. General practice providers are usually fine, as well. Sometimes a Web site for a local hospital, especially if it's affilated with a college, will have "find a provider" tools.

I know this must be difficult for you, as we know the psychological impact of having warts is both very real and often overlooked. Warts are almost always a condition that can be managed and seldom causes long-term issues, but that's little comfort to you right now! Keep posting and let us know how you are.

Hope this helps.

Best,
Fredo
