    Hi everyone who reads this.

    I saw a young girl today referred by a GP with a "wart" on the dorsum of her foot.
    This "wart" just below the lateral malleoli. She has a history of Whilm's tumour on a kidney which has subsequently removed.

    As I wasn't totally sure what it was and given its location and the fact that it only occasionaly itched I did not want to treat it and referred her to a dermatologist via GP.

    Has anyone any ideas what it might be? I suppose it did have a wart type apperance. Would anyone have done anything differntly?

    I'm certain you did the right thing by referral, Dom. Atypical location for an HPV wart, and they don't itch....

    The concern that most readily springs to mind is that this might be a metastatic secondary from the kidney tumour?

    Needs urgent biopsy.

    Could be cancerous. You did the right thing! If in doubt...leave it out!
