Warts formation is a viral infection that affects skin where local growths of mass from the skin surface is observed. Warts happen to form on any organ of the body and there are over a hundred types of viruses that cause this infection. Warts tend to disappear by themselves over a period of time, but in certain cases these tumors may contract an infection and lead to fatal situations and some warts could lead to cancer as well. Also, since warts look a bit abnormal and may annoy on places such as hands, fingers or face causing social discomfort, it is always advised to have warts removed in the earlier stage itself.
Warts are caused by a virus named Human Papillomavirus (HPV) and there are many types of HPV. The area of growth depends on the type of HPV that infected the organ. Warts grow in any shape and size and at any place and the virus is contagious. Most of the cases warts do not affect the human body but warts may be cancerous and since they also look abnormal by the looks, it is always advised to have those warts removed.

The best way is to find a dermatologist who could study the skin condition and suggest an appropriate treatment.
