Warts may be painful if they're located on pressure points. Plantar warts on the bottom of the toes, heel or sole of the foot are subjected to pressure while walking or running. The same pressure that forces a wart to grow inward can also cause pain.

Sometimes, squeezing a skin growth may help differentiate between a callus and a plantar wart. Calluses are usually not painful when squeezed from the sides, but plantar warts may feel sore after being squeezed.2‘Plantar Warts.’ Ada, ada.com/conditions/plantar-warts/
