Are they positive they are warts and not nodules from a poorly fitted appliance?

They haven't said what they are but, that is what they look like.  It is some kind of growth.  Or leashon growth it is really strange kind of growth.  He had UC with complete removal of large intestine and over half of small.  Now premit illostomy with these growths on it and possible on the inside as well. We go to Dr next week for a scope and byopsy.

Keep us posted on how the scope and biopsy go. I did a lot of research and could find no cases of warts on a stoma. Nodules, however, can often form and can look like warts. They are lesions smaller than a papule and outgrowths of cluster of cells. They are hard like warts. This can come from a poorly fitted appliance. If the growths are on the inside, that makes me think that this could be a skin reaction to the output coming out of the stoma, or a type of fungus, which very well may be the case. Whatever they are, the biopsy will be able to tell for sure. Good luck and keep us posted!

I had an ileostomy April '09 and developed "warts" on my stoma within 3 months.  A nurse at the wound care center treated them in the office with a device that either cauterized them or froze them.  Sorry, I can't remember which.  Anyway, it was painless and they went away.  The nurse referred to them as nodules but they sure looked like warts to me.  There was no mention of what caused them.  

Good luck

Thanks to all we got some answers they are not warts they are called mucosa.  But, can't be sure if crohns or UC so it was decided that he has both.  Taking a new medication to hopefully improve them to get smaller or clear up.  Also is now fight IBD that is causing blockage in what little small intestines, that he has left.  Now waiting for the medication to work we hope...
