[Question #4679] HPV? Other?

28 months ago
Approximately two months ago i recieved unprotected oral sex at a gentlemens club for less than 30 seconds before fully realizing what was happening. 

I wad very paranoid for the next few weeks amd noticed a very small bump that i had looked at by my dermatologist. She told me it was just a crevice in my skin.  I moved on.

Then about a week later i noticed a bump on my shaft when i am flaccid.  The bump is basically right where my frenulum is(circumcized) and can be skin colored or a little pink.  It does not hurt or ooze.  Nor do i have any othet weird STD type symptoms.  If i am erect, the skin basically stretches out and it mostly disappears.  I have a feeling this is just the way my skin is settling when non erect, but my earlier bump has me paranoid.

So my questions:
1. Based off the very brief exposure, am i less likely to have contracted something?
2.  Is HPV my primary concern if it is something?
3.  Is there anything else to look for from a idrntifying point of view? I would like to avoid a second dermatologist appointment within such a short period.

Welcome to the forum and thanks for your question.  I'll do my best to help. the exposure that you describe was very, very low risk and it is not uncommon when persons engage in an exposure that they then regret, to begin to notice skin irregularities and sensations that they would have not noticed had they not been paying far more attention than normal.  I suspect that this is what is happening here.  In answer to your questions:

1. Based off the very brief exposure, am i less likely to have contracted something?
Your risk from the brief exposure is quite low.

2.  Is HPV my primary concern if it is something?
The most common STIs to occur following receipt of oral sex are gonorrhea nd non-chlamydial non-gonococcal urethritis but you are far too far out for those problems to be coming apparent.  The "bump" you notice is probably nothing but if it were anything at all, HPV would be the leading candidate.

3.  Is there anything else to look for from a idrntifying point of view? I would like to avoid a second dermatologist appointment within such a short period.
I really think you need not worry.  

I hope these comments are helpful.  EWH
