I have a small wart on my anus, external, well almost internal if you know what I mean. I have never had warts, I am entering my 4th week of radiation, and having Proctitis. The wart actually causes additional pain. Should I have it removed? Or will I have more pain/swelling if I do? I think the radiation and chemo lowered my immunity to combat HPV warts. I had a couple of external warts on my perineum(space between anus and scrotum) removed years ago, but never on my anus.
My colorectal doctor does not remove warts in his office only in surgery. There are docs that specialize in wart removal, but don't know if they would do it while I am in treatment. What has your experience been? It's embarrassing and uncomfortable, I thought they were not supposed to be painful?
