Which Doctor SHould I have look at these moles? (maybe a bit TMI??)

I have been noticing an increasing number of moles on my outer labia. I want to have them looked at and I am not sure if I should go to my OBGYN or a dermatologist (I don't currently have one).
I have a history of about 8 yrs of abnormal paps (which = low-grade pre-cancerous cells) and a diagnosis of HPV several years back . This can increase my risk of skin cancer of the labia. My OB knows my whole history of that.
So who do I go see??

  • Your OB. He/she's the one that specializes in that area!

  • Stick with who knows you, if you need to be referred to someone else the OB will arrange that for you..

  • I'd call the OBGYN and ask her to refer you to a dermatologist.

  • Sounds like Venereal Warts. Go to your OBGYN. Dermatologists are not that great.
