In brief: Dermatologist

If they are growing, they can be warts, see a dermatologist for treatment options.

no test needed for molluscum

In brief: Common benign issue

Doc's see this lesion frequently & i can't remember ever needing tests or a dermatologist to tell me the difference in molluscum & a wart.
They start out tiny, grow to bigger than a bb shot, itch & are scratched until they fall off in a couple of months.
