Genital wart vs biopsy

This past week I found what I believed to be a genital wart just below my waistline. I picked at it and it scabbed over. I went to the dermatologist who removed it and sent for biopsy to determine if it was. The pathologist said it wasnt a wart but a skin tag. Well a few days after its removal I noticed a lesion growing within the prior wart location.  I'm confused. Wouldnt a pathologist be able to identify if it were indeed a wart?
