lumpy inside... i know now

i posted something on my girlfriend finding a lump inside me and i took the advise of going to th quack but now i am very much PUZZLED...
he told me that i have warts but its strange because i havent been with a man for almost two years. whats even more frustrating is that i had gone to him in the beginning of the year but did not do an internal only blood tests and an outside scan. i have never had these lumps inside me until two months ago as i check regularly??? confussed i think???

Warts are due to the HPV virus. This can lie dormant for many years and only give rise to warts several years after it was picked up.

Wobbly,

It is possible that you were infected with genital warts two years ago, but that it was dormant in your system until now. Maybe your immune system is compromised through stress or changes in your life and that this gave the germ causing the warts to become active.

Was the doc able to give some medication for it?
