What is it
Skin lesions of various origins differ in appearance, shape, size and structure. The most common are viral warts, seborrheic warts and fibromas.

Types of warts
Viral warts - caused by infection with the HPV virus. They tend to grow and spread. They can have different locations.
Seborrheic warts - benign skin tumors. They can appear alone or in groups, they appear with age. As they grow, they are exposed to irritation and mechanical damage, and thus inflammation.
