If it is causing you concerns, then you should get it removed. Your family doctor is the best starting point for advice. Dr Steve Merten, Sydney, Australia
Lesion on the back
Thank you for your question. The lesion in the photo looks like a wart. There are multiple over the counter treatments for warts that include paring the wart to be mostly flat and applying salicylic acid nightly. Your doctor can also treat it with liquid nitrogen. In rare occasions a squamous cell skin cancer can be at the base but it does not seem likely based on your photos. I recommend for you to see your doctor if the over the counter medications do not work after 3-4 months.
