What Is The Meaning Of Consistent With Squamous Cell Papillomata With With Virus Asscociated Features?

squamous cell papillomata with virus associated features = it's a wart, likely caused by HPV (human papilloma virus).

no dysplasia or malignancy = you don't have skin cancer.

If it is bothering you for some reason, you can have it removed.
You can try an over-the-counter salicylic acid patch.
If that doesn't work, you can go to a dermatologist who will freeze it off with liquid nitrogen (there are freeze-sprays available over-the-counter but they aren't as cold as liquid nitrogen).
There are also a few special chemicals that the dermatologist might try.
Alternatively, there is even a home remedy using duct tape (it really does have a million uses) that has been shown in medical studies to have a reasonable degree of effectiveness (I don't remember the details of what to do--so you can search the web for "duct tape remove warts").

HPV-associated warts very often come back after removal (you can get rid of the wart, but the virus is still in your skin and can cause the wart to grow back).
Remember that when you are deciding if you want to go to the trouble.
Also remember that treatment options will vary depending on where the wart is.
For example, liquid nitrogen might be off the table if the wart is on a delicate part of your body.
