Thoughts on what this growth is??

I just noticed this growth on my dog's paw recently... I had the vet take a look at it and after just a quick glance, he said it was a wart of some sort. He didn't biopsy it or anything.. Just quickly looked at it, said it was a wart, and then moved on to something else.. However, it doesn't look like any "wart" I've ever seen nor does it look like the pictures of warts I googled. It's about the size of a pea and has the same consistency as his paw pad (squishy but firm at the same time..not like jelly squish and not firm like a hard callous). It feels like a paw pad would feel underneath the rough surface. Also, it seems to be painful if I squeeze it even just a little based on his reaction of pulling his paw away & then licking it.

I'm really worried it might be something bad... Like malignant, bad.

Thoughts?

He may have something in there and it's abcessing.

I'd have the vet check it out. If it IS cancer, then waiting is not going to be good
