In brief: Verruca

Warts or verruca vulgaris are caused by hpv.
You may have another type of growth that is not a wart. For a clear diagnosis see a dermatologist.

In brief: Warts from HPV

The viruses that cause warts are in the human papillomavirus (hpv) family.
There are many different subtypes of hpv that cause different types of warts in different locations of the body. As with other viral infections, warts may be transmitted from one individual to another. But it's important to know that most warts are not sexually transmitted.
