Hi. im a 30 year old male.I had a filiform wart right around the lower lip for several months. Then I had it removed after finding out it was HPV related. Removal was done through a combination of liquid nitrogen cryotherapy as well as electrical burning after viral seedings were detected. I asked my dermatologist to check the inside of my mouth and he saw no lesions.
After the removal, the filiform wart reappeared on my chin and face and was also removed through cryotherapy. Now, there seems to be no more visible lesions.
Now you might be wondering why am I posting this on this forum.
My question is: since that filiform wart was right around the lip, meaning it probably came in frequent contact with the tongue and lips and mouth, can this imply that I might have a latent mucosal HPV infection inside the mouth or it would have shown if there was any infection by now? And if so, is there any oncogenic potential to this? Some dermatologists have told me not to worry, but from what I read, I keep worrying I might cause myself or someone else (my partner) oral cancer through kissing. Am I overthinking this because it is kinda blocking me (even blocking me when I kiss someone)...Please advise back and let me also know if this is the right forum to ask this question.
