You may have a lump under your foot and want to know if it is a wart. You have heard about warts and plantar warts, but you aren’t exactly sure what they are and if you should be concerned about your foot lump. Watch a skilled New Jersey podiatrist explain plantar warts in this video.

People often want to know if their wart is a plantar wart. You might be surprised to learn that any wart on the bottom of your foot is a plantar wart caused by a virus. The virus is highly contagious and is found mostly in children, teenagers, and young adults; however, anyone can have warts on their feet. Environments such as college showers and pools are places many people pick up the virus.

Because warts are highly contagious, it is essential to have them treated; however, most people are afraid to see a podiatrist for fear that the wart will have to be cut out. At Family Foot & Ankle Specialists, we treat warts painlessly with cream. To find out more, call a New Jersey foot doctor at 908-874-8030 or 732-968-3833, or contact our offices online at
