Question: On the middle finger of each hand right below the nail I have a hard bump that is sore, it looks like a wart . Both have been there for several weeks. Would it be advisable to prick it to see if there is fluid there and it might dry up and go away.

Brief Answer:

Kindly upload images.

Detailed Answer:

Hello!

I have noted your concern.

I request you to kindly upload an image of the affected area on finger so that I am able to confirm whether it is a wart or not. Pricking is anyways not a treatment for warts.

Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Not wart.

Detailed Answer:

Hi!

Doesn't look like a wart. Most likely it is a fibroma.
