Plantar warts grow in the plantar fascia, which is the wide band of tissue on the bottom of your foot that forms your arch. They often remain hidden by the thick skin, with the only signs being a small bump and severe pain when weight is put on the affected foot. Since plantar warts can be difficult to identify and treat properly without causing further problems, contact your foot doctor.
