Welcome back. But I really can't help. There are many causes of skin bumps, in the genital area or anywhere else. Single genital warts are uncommon -- usually several warts appear about the same time. On that basis, it seems unlikely this was a wart. However, I have no way at all to know -- and by destroying it, you have prevented any possibility of accurate diagnosis, so I would recommend you not see a health care provider about this unless similar bumps appear in the future. Then leave them alone until you have been examined.

This is your tenth forum question, and mostly you have asked about genital warts and HPV and the others also primarily reflected anxiety, not real risk. Repeated questions on the same topic are not permitted, as you were told a year ago --here's the statement from that thread:

 Please note the forum does not permit repeated questions on the same topic or exposure. This will have to be your last one; future new questions about these issue may not be answered, without refund of the posting fee. This policy is based on compassion, not criticism, and is designed to reduce temptations to keep paying for questions with obvious answers. In addition, experience shows that continued answers tend to prolong users' anxieties. Finally, such questions have little educational value for other users, one of the forum's main purposes. Thank you for your understanding.

So this for sure is your last question. Thanks again for your understanding.
