Weird growth on toe. Pale color and fleshy. Is it extra skin?

Hi, I have a sort of weird growth on my big toe that s been there for a while. I figured it wasn t anything significant, but I m starting to get worried, as it hasn t gone away. Part of me thinks it s starting to hurt, but I think that may just be me being worried about it. The growth is fleshy and slightly pale. It doesn t hurt when I touch it or anything, just looks like some extra skin.

It seems that the growth on great toe you suggest ,would be a wart.

Also called verruca caused by virus.

It is contagious disease, that is why it should be treated as early as possible.

Treatment is very easy and simple.

Electrocautery under local anaesthesia may be done by expert., It is a simple OPD procedure .

Cryotherapy and laser ablation are other methods.

Chemical cautery using TCA is also used to cure wart.

Anyways, consult dermatologist , discuss with him and go ahead for treatment.

I hope you got my answer.
