Question: hmmm.....thought I could send a picture but it's not giving me the option

I have something on my hand, has been there for about 4 years I guess. I thought it was a wart, but it appears to be under the skin. It does have that cauliflower like appearance. Is there a way I can send you a picture?

Brief Answer:
it doesn't seem to be a wart.

Detailed Answer:

Welcome to Healthcare Magic.

I evaluated closely the pictures you have sent and I can tell that the lesion on the palm of your hand is not a wart.It seems to be just a benign lump probably fatty tissue but it doesn't look like a wart.
The fact that it has been there for 4 years and hasn't changed in size ,makes it completely benign.

Hope it helps.
Let me know if you have any question or need any clarification.

Kind regards,
Dr.Rovena Murati
