Unfortunately: You need to have it looked at by a physician. Sometimes, the only way you can definitively diagnose it is by a biopsy. See your local Dr. You could try posting a pic of the lesion.

Never too sure....: There is no way to be absolutely sure. Warts can be missed by the most seasoned physician. In general warts are found on weight bearing areas of the foot. Pushing on a wart usually does not hurt but squeezing on a wart hurts. Left untreated, warts may begin as one and then form clusters. Warts do generally occur on 45 year old adults. A good picture and Healthtap concierge may be best for you.
