A viral wart on the side of a finger - Image
A viral wart on the side of a finger. The picture shows the typical verrucous structure of this benign tumour. Cryosurgery with liquid nitrogen is probably the therapy of choice on this location. Vigorous freezing may cause temporary nerve damage to the digital sensory nerves. If a ring finger is frozen, first make sure that the ring(s) are removed to avoid ischaemic risk of oedema.
