Gray Lumps Like A Mole On The Penis.?
like the little gray mole on the testicles whether it is warts and whether it rubs off on my partner who is already dead and related, and 3 days ago released while scratching, and left a small black scar, does this lump spread to my wife and become cancerous? cervical?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all, of course, it needs to be ascertained first, whether grayish lumps such as moles have existed long ago or just appeared? In general, after passing the age of 30 years, new moles will not appear again. Most moles appear at the age of children to adolescents. Basically, it is very difficult to distinguish between moles or warts with just the characteristic gray bumps because both of them can have these characteristics (although warts generally look more skin-colored, warts can still have brownish, gray, to black). To be able to tell the difference, you can check with your dermatologist so that further evaluation can be done on the gray lump.
Another thing that needs to be asked is, do you have a history of risky sexual relations (sexual relations with someone other than your wife without using a condom)? If so, then you do have a risk of contracting HPV (and there is a possibility that the gray lump is a wart). If not, then your risk of contracting HPV is quite small. In addition, it is also necessary to know the sexual history of your own wife (has your wife ever had a risky sexual relationship?).
If indeed you or your wife have a history of risky sexual relations, then your wife actually has a risk of contracting HPV infection and cervical cancer. You yourself also have a risk of penile cancer. For your wife, you should routinely screen for cervical cancer, which can be done at a midwife or obstetrician. Basically, all women aged 21 years and over are advised to have regular PAP smears every 3 years. At the age of 30-65 years, these women can choose to have a PAP smear every 3 years or do a PAP smear and HPV check every 5 years.
