Meaning of Wart
A wart is a small, rough growth resembling a cauliflower or a solid blister. It typically occurs on humans' hands or feet but often in other locations. Warts are caused by a viral infection, specifically by one of the many types of human papillomavirus (HPV). There are as many as 10 varieties of warts, the most common considered to be mostly harmless. It is possible to get warts from others; they are contagious and usually enter the body in an area of broken skin. - See link


Wart in Spanish is Verruga
La verruga es una lesión cutánea causada por el virus del papiloma humano. Son lesiones que presentan una forma variable, excrecente y a veces de chocante apariencia, generalmente de forma globular, que pueden afectar a distintas zonas de la piel. Su extirpación no es fácil ya que las verrugas tienen su propio sistema de irrigación sanguínea que causan sangramientos abundantes cuando su extracción es por medios no clínicos; además pueden regenerarse con mayor virulencia. Adicionalmente compromete varios terminales nerviosos por lo que su extracción o manipulación causa gran dolor. - See link
