Hi

Welcome to just answer.

I am a double board certified US doctor and will help you with this question.

This can be a wart, but really looks like a common nevus. Harmless.

Have your doctor do a magnified exam to confirm.

Show it to your doctor.

To confirm. Nothing related to HPV correct ?
Expert:  DrThomasMd replied 9 months ago.

That is why you need a magnified exam.

All warts are HPV, even benign ones.

This looks more like a benign nevus.

As I said.

But we can not diagnose on line.

That is for your doc.

That is to be safe: we can not use a magnifying device from this end.
