Hi,
Warts are painless, benign skin tumors characterized by an area of well circumscribed epithelial thickening. Most people develop warts on their hands or feet at sometime in their lives. They are most common in childhood, with 4-20% of school children having warts at any one time. The DNA papillomavirus is causative and is passed by direct contact with an infected person or from recently shed virus kept intact in a moist, warm environment.
Cryotherapy - often preferred because scar formation is minimized. Freezing periungual warts may result in nail deformation. Excision with electrocautery, laser ablation, curettage (the virus may be found in smoke so masks should be worn). Disfiguring scars and wart recurrence are problems.
Apart from cauterization what is the other treatment the doctor has planned?
Keep me posted.
Bye.
