i went to my doctor recently because i noticed a bump down below, and it turned out to be a wart. just one, and its less than 5mm in diameter. my doctor tried freezing it off, just once, then said it would have to be surgically removed at considerable cost by a gynaecologist.
what i want to know is should i be going to another doctor and asking for a chemical option? the freezing did reduce it in size by about 25% but my doctor is not answering any of my questions about treatment alternatives to surgery. i was wondering if anyone knew if chemical treatments actually work? i have been to the doctors over six times in the past month due to a work accident and i'm just about ready to cut the thing off myself with scissors to avoid going back!
also, a lot of websites say not to use over-the-counter medicine to treat genital warts but they fail to mention exactly why - does anyone know?
