Crusty wart on stomach. Worried about skin cancer

I have a crusty looking wart that showed up on my stomach . I know that it s I have probably have had it less then a month. I have been worried that it might be some form of skin cancer . I have a scheduled appointment with my dermatologist next week. It s the earliest appointment that I could. Could it be something else besides skin cancer? Thank you!!

Dermatologist 's  Response
Thanks for query.All warty lesions are not skin cancers.Most of them are benign condition like simple wart,seborrhoeic keratosis etc. A very small percentage of those lesions are carcinomas,but they have an excellent prognosis .So you need not to be worried.
