At first I thought it was an ingrown hair and i kept picking at it... 5 years ago or more and I just noticed now it's bigger.
Doctor: Sumanth Amperayani, Board Certified MD replied 4 months ago

Hi....I understand your concern.

I have see both images. The possibilities are -

1. Viral wart.

2. Skin excrescence.

3. As it has grown in size - a neoplasm of the skin.

It will require an excision and biopsy please. Based on the biopsy report we need to plan further treatment.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
