Although the cautery process removes the warts, it is superficial process and doesn’t treat the underlying viral infection and once removed the warts can reoccur, so it isn’t a permanent treatment.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
Dr, thank you for your reply. Just got results back from biopsy of the smaller warts i described. The biopsies were negative for HPV.....Reasonably, it doesnt 'compute' the recurring bumps can be anything else. Are 'biopsies' generally reliable ? thank you
