I have an odd looking lesion on my upper leg, inside of

Customer Question

Hi, I have an odd looking lesion on my upper leg, inside of thigh area.. It started off as small and skin color and now has grown and kind of looks wart like. I've never had a wart so I don't know where it came from. It doesn't hurt at all, but it is very unsightly. Any idea of what this could be?
JA: How long have you been dealing with the skin issue? Have you noticed any major changes in your overall skin or nails recently?
Customer: Not at all.. this is the 1st time I've had anything like this
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: I eat healthy, exercise, have a thin frame. I'm pale skinned but really don't go in the sun much. It looks like a wart, but I don't think it is

It is a little red now from my touching it
Expert:  DIEGO BONILLA replied 2 months ago.

The lesion is likely a wart. You can get this remove by your PCP. Avoid touching it. Warts are usually caused by a virus and can be removed very easily. Let me know if you have any other questions. Please rate my answer.
