From what the article states it's not really hard material, I think firm would be a better description.

It is not believed to be the same thing as the rabbit virus, but possibly something along those lines.
What I find most interesting is that it's specific to the areas around the hands and feet, two areas that tend to grow skin more readily and quicker
than other parts of the body. In addition, hand and foot skin also tends to be tougher. Perhaps, whatever afflicts this guy, has made those specific
types of cells go crazy and just grow out of control.
Also, these are not tumors, as they do not appear to be living cells that have a blood vessel structure to them.
Odd odd odd.
