I have these bumps that are flesh colored (pink) on the skin surrounding my anus. But they are just on one buttocks next to my anus ranging from about an 1/2 inch away. I went to a gyn & she said depending on my pap smears may do a vulvar biopsy. What reasons would you do a biopsy of that kind?

Hi there, thank you for posting your question on Ehealthforum. This is not intended as a substitute to visiting your own doctor.

I think what you are describing here are anal warts. I do not know what's going on in your gyn's mind. But if these are warts, caused by the human papillomavirus, you need to get rid of them now. They can be burned -- cautery or acid, frozen also called cryosurgery. Treatments sometimes have to be repeated several times. Or you can get rid of them by charms, visualisation or self-hypnosis. picture them gone and they will go!.
