When to Call A Doctor
If you think you might have a wart, you should show it to your doctor at your next visit to make sure it is a wart and to discuss treatment.
Seek help if your wart causes pain, bleeds easily, spreads easily to other areas of the body or comes back, or if you want the wart removed for cosmetic reasons. You also should see your doctor if you develop genital warts, so they can be treated.
