A wart is a common type of skin growth that can occur singly or in clusters. They are most common on the hands, but can develop elsewhere on the body such as the feet. Warts are not usually painful, unless they are on the soles of the feet. They are contagious, however, so can spread to other parts of the body or even to other people.
