Papaloma

Hi,
I have a small paploma in my foot, I am eleven years old.
I thought it was a splinter so I clipped it out with the nail cutters.
It has healed up now but there is still a  bump on the skin.
I am scared of telling my mum, I hope she doesnt get mad at me.
Now my brother has a papaloma in the same area.
Please help!

Hi,
How are you? What other symptoms are present? Papilloma consists of an overgrowth of cells. It can be present as the common warts which is caused by specific human papilloma viruses.   These are often found on the hands and feet, but can also occur in other areas, such as the elbows or knees.  Don't be afraid to tell your mother about this. Since this condition is pretty common and can easily be transmitted to other persons. Confirmation of the diagnosis is done through direct clinical examination. Take care and do keep us posted.
