Caused by human papillomavirus (HPV), warts are growths that appear on the skin. While cosmetically unappealing, these growths are benign (non-cancerous). Considered contagious, warts can spread through contact. Although warts are typically not a cause for medical concern, many men and women in the Los Alamitos area opt to have them removed for aesthetic purposes and to not potentially spread them to others. More common on hands, warts can develop anywhere on the body. They are often skin-colored in appearance and rough to the touch. However, some warts may be darker and smooth in appearance.
