To learn about common warts, see for example:

http://familydoctor.org/familydoctor/en/diseases-conditions/warts.printerview.all.html

 

Here are some facts about warts:

  • Can spread by touching the warts, or by touching an object (e.g. a towel) that came in contact with warts.
     
  • The virus that causes warts is called the human papilloma virus (HPV); the skin growth develops when, after entering the skin, the virus causes cells to multiply causing a thickening of the outer layer of skin.
     
  • Warts can grow anywhere on the skin.
     
  • Warts are often skin-colored but can be dark.
     
  • Warts most often feel like rough bumps, but they can be flat and smooth. They can also have black dots that look like seeds.

Customer's Comment: Size is 5mm long. It is on my side by the bottom of my rib cage. I think it may have started as a skin tag maybe a year ago.

 

Customer's Comment After Analysis: Cool. Good to know. Thank you.

Customer's Comment: About 7 mm. Has been on husband's head behind his ear for several years, the texture is very bumpy and I'm just curious if it's one we need to worry about.

Thank you

Customer's Comment: My mole is located right on the top of my buttocks. I am embarrassed and don't have health insurance. I would be very grateful to hear what you recommend. I have had this mole I believe my whole life but it was very tiny and not elevated. It has started to itch in the last couple of months.
