would like to thank this forum for helping me out when i was scared and confused the first time i found out i had hpv. for helping me understand hpv and know that i certainly am not alone.
its been a year since I posted and since diagnosis of hpv and since last pap test and cryotherapy. my og gyn told me to get a pap after 3mos but i never did. kept putting off getting pap test because have been too busy at work and a lil scared of what i may find out. cervix healed well a year ago. no warts or anything since i first got diagnosed. husband ( was my bf when diagnosed) has never had wart. the last two or three months though felt tiny immobile bump on r labia maj that didnt feel like a wart so ignored it. slowly grew but still ignored because never really bothered me. never went away and sometimes i would feel it sting a lil bit, but never enough to warrant a dr's appointment. today though it is suddenly inflamed and painful and is about 20 times bigger than it was this morning! i am freaking out. my husband and i had sex this morning, and maybe that triggered the inflammation somehow. i would rather have a wart than this. i am deathly scared of cancer. it looks like a painful red pimple or an inflamed follicle right now. i lived in a different country 2008, have never been to a doctor here in the US. would an OB Gyn be able to help me or should I go straight to a gynecologist-oncologist? i wish i never slacked off on the pap tests. all i think about now is cancer.
