Intraurethral Wart
« on: May 27, 2014, 12:42:58 PM »
Just learned today from urologist visit that I have a wart up inside the urethra.  It is freaking me out and I don't even understand how they can be up there especially since I've never even had any even near the opening.  Anyhow..... has anyone had this problem or any knowledge on it?  So far from what I've been reading it isn't very easy to treat.  I'd appreciate any information.

Thanks
Dean

      Deer Kardean ,

      I WOULD GET A SECOND OPINION  ASAP !   

     Not to freak you out  , but make sure it is ONLY a WART !   

     I lost a good friend to Penis Cancer ; the doctor had told him
     it was a wart  , when it was too late the doctor confirmed cancer !

     I pray it is a wart , you are in my prayers now .

Sorry about your news.
.
What bought you to the tests in the first place? Do not be discouraged if you do not receive many replies, one I think this is rare , 2 people will struggle to know what to say .

Has there been any further developments?
Wishing you all the best

Thanks Carl and I'm sorry about your friend. 

As for cancer, who knows?  The urologist sent a urine specimen to some out of state lab for evidently some testing beyond our local laboratories and it was unbeknown to me that he did this until I got a bill from this lab for over $300!!! 
Anyhow, this lab tested for cancer cells shedding anywhere within the genital/urinary tract and the results were negative.

I do plan to get a second opinion as this urologist missed it completely when he first examined me.  He was a “network” referral by my GP who thought there MIGHT BE a wart up inside.   

Assuming since my referring doctor would have had to send my chart to this guy, I went into the appointment without question and the only one he asked me was if I had any flow problems.  He done a cystoscopy and said he saw nothing abnormal.  Afterwards he said the next step was a CT and some labs.... told me to get dressed and as he was heading out the door I asked "No Warts? Because doc# thought maybe"   He said no and walked out.

When I returned to go over the scan results (which were basically all good) he asked if I had any more bleeding.  I told him no but was having off and on stingy sensations.  He used a different scope and found it.  Without apology… he preceded into treatment options.    I just listened and told him I’d think about it. 

I don’t know if you read my previous thread back in April, but I don’t have a lot of luck and or faith in a lot of my experiences with doctors.  I fired my ID of 6 years and have my initial consultation next month with the ID Clinic at the university.  I will definitely take this wart issue up with them and go from there.

Sorry about your news.

I noticed blood in my underwear a couple times within a 2 month period.  Other than that nothing.  However, I often where dark colored undies so it would have been harder to notice.  I thought it strange and mostly because I thought I would have felt something down there if there was bleeding.  It wasn't until after my GP suggested it might be a wart that I started to have some occasional odd penile sensations.  I thought it was either coincidental or the fact that I may have the wart up in there.  You know?   Like when we first get hiv dx and you start noticing every little oddity with our body and well being.

I know it is rare.  Anytime you Google something and don't come up with it or very little, you know it is rare.  However I just wonder if it isn't that it is rare as much as it isn't all that symptomatic and most never think anything about it.  Like I stated, my only clue was blood spot in underwear.  Physically speaking, my peeing is normal and the brief stingy sensations I feel from time to time, I probably wouldn't even think about or notice if I didn't know I had the wart.  It's not bothersome or anything, not anything that you feel you need to go after and scratch of nothing.  I just call it a "tickle in my pickle".  LOL

I guess the concern is if it becomes chili in the Willie .

Sorry could not resist.

Given that you are moving your HIV care to the UNI then I have no more to add , sounds a good plan. The behaviour off the Doctor is low and dirty. I think most men would just be flooded with relief and get out so bravery kudos to you. The Doc needs reporting , he is not doing his job well enough IMO
