Cancerous Warts

Hey, Dr. Rockoff told somebody (named pruella) that warts are never cancerous or precancerous, but that isn't true!  Human Papillomavirus has many strains and some warts are malignant, meaning that person's friend with warts all over his hands might have a carcinoma problem!  I don't know how to comment on the page or contact the misinformed person so I'm just posting here.

While common and plantar warts are not, some warts are cancerous.

See a doctor.
