Hello, I’m a 27 year old gay male. A few months ago i noticed a bump inside my rectum and didn’t think anything of it. Last week, it seemed to have worsened so I made a trip to a recital surgeon and i wasn’t diagnosed with anal warts. None on the outside, they’re inside and to be honest, I feel like I’m spiraling into depression. I have a few friends who have been very supportive, but i feel completely alone on this.
I’m having surgery next Wednesday to have them removed. The surgery isn’t what scares me, it’s the fact that these can continue to come back and i feel like i have no where to turn.
I’ve done some reading on forums and it seems most people dealing with HPV or anal warts tend to drop off the radar. Is there anyone else going through this horrible situation willing to share your experience with this?
