Top 6 Skin Colored Mass on Lower Leg Causes

  1. 1.Wart

    Warts are non-serious skin growths caused by a virus that infects the top layer of the skin. They are contagious.

    You can try several over-the-counter treatments, including salicylic acid and cryotherapy (freezing). Most warts go away on their own, but less so in adults.
