Is this wart on my middle finger bad? and are warts bad in general?

I have a wart on my middle finger. Its small and not really noticable but I find it annoying because its just there. Its like.. less than 1cm by 1cm. Also, I hit the same middle finger earlier today and got a "new wart" i think. Its a 1cm by 1cm bump at where my finger jammed. It felt like a car door slammed on my finger. Is that a wart or just a bump from the damage? and are warts bad too?

Warts can just be warts, or they can indicate that you have skin cancer. I suggest having a doctor look at it. Also, there is over the counter products you can buy to remove them if you like. You can get these at places like wal mart, your local drug store, or supermarket. Also. to your second question, it could be a wart, but i would bet that it is damage from your injury, and will be gone in a day or two.

Warts tend to grow bigger over time, and can be painful and just plain gross. If OTC meds and products don't work, go to a doctor's office and they will freeze it off. Nip it in the bud now while you can.

i just got rid of one it took almost a year but yea they can hurt at times use this stuff called freeze off and do that like 7 times and it should work if there is black dots in it then it is contagious well most warts are just dont let other people touch it and keep a band-aid over it and whatever you do dont touch a girl or boy.....downstairs ! they wont go away !

Do not worry, it is not skin cancer. If you had skin cancer you would have a mole. But just to be on the safe side, next time you go to the doctor ask! If the wart gets worse them maybe you have a problem!
