Possible herpes

Recently, my ex girlfriend has told me she developed a bump on her pereneal region. Not a rash. A bump. But a painful bump. She went to her doctor and a culture test was performed, which came back positive. I am a future med student, and have accumulated a lot of info over the past few years about infectious diseases. Her bump is not showing any characteristic of an outbreak, nor is she having any other symptoms.

I myself am in the process of having a blood test performed to have myself tested. Her and I were manogomous. And given the average time frame, any point when we could have contracted the virus, symptoms should have arisen already (I am aware that about 20% of people show no symptoms). Is it possible for a false positive culture, even though highly unlikely.

Everyone is aware that a lot of medical diseases/infections can be confused for a less severe situation. Does herpes 2 have any mimic diseases?
