In brief: Tests for verrucas
A wart is diagnosed by its location and appearance.
If uncertain as to the type of skin problem, the doctor may elect to perform any of several different tests such as a biopsy.

In brief: Depends
Are you referring to common warts or venereal warts.
Examination can often tell which they are. After surgical excision, they can be tested by the pathologist.
