A wart is an abnormal skin growth which is caused by the HPV (human papillomavirus). This infects the upper layers of the skin and is also seen entering the body by breaking in through the inner skin layers. This virus causes the affected skin to grow at a rapid pace and develop into a wart.Most warts tends to disappear within a few months or a few years. Warts are seen developing almost anywhere on the body and can be of various types as well.
Experienced doctors can easily identify warts normally with a visual examination, however, at time the doctor might need to perform a biopsy and remove a sample from the wart tissue for detailed microscopic analysis in a pathology laboratory.
Wart Removal Surgery
Although most warts can be removed using non-surgical techniques such as medicinal and topical drugs, there are cases when a surgeon might have to use surgical methods to remove the warts.
Wart removal surgery can also be done using a variety of techniques, such as:
This requires the surgeon probably to use super-cooled liquid nitrogen on the wart and destroy it using intense cold. This is most effective for highly visible and smaller-sized warts.
This is another surgical method of wart removal. It requires the surgeon to use high intensity electric to destroy the wart tissue therefore which can be then removed using a scalpel.
This is an advanced and innovative method of wart removal.for the reason that Laser therapy requires using a small high-energy beam of focused light to target the wart tissue and destroy it. This is a considerably safer wart removal technique as it does not affect the surrounding healthy tissue.
Wart removal surgery, like any other surgery, can be assured a higher rate of success when performed by an experienced and well-trained surgeon with a previous wide experience in performing efficient and successful wart removal surgeries.
