What are warts?

Warts, also known as verruca, are caused by a virus and can be spread through touching. Warts are often rough growths with a pattern of small back dots that are caused by clotting in the blood vessels. The three types of warts are common, genital and plantar. Common warts may disappear on their own without medical treatment, but some patients prefer treatment due to the unattractive appearance and risk of spreading warts.

What causes warts?

All warts are caused by the human papillomavirus, or HPV, but the different types of HPV generate different types of warts. Common warts are normally harmless, but genital warts can lead to serious medical conditions, including cervical cancer. Some people are at higher risk for developing common warts, including children and young adults, as well as patients who have compromised immune systems.

New safety policies for patients:

  • Patients will undergo screening questions and receive comprehensive instructions about our new policies prior to their appointment.
