Small Uvula Bumps
When I was flossing my back teeth last week, I noticed some small bumps on my uvula. There is one on either side of my uvula where it joins the roof of my mouth, and then increasingly small ones go down the front of the uvula in a sort of a V-shape. They are 100% painless, although they may be slightly red (not sure if it's just normal inside-of-the-mouth red or not).

I have post-nasal drip and have been having some nasal and throat dryness as well as eyes burning, but these symptoms aren't out of the ordinary for me so I don't know if they are connected at all.

I'm wondering if this is normal anatomy, like salivary glands or somesuch, especially since there are several bumps and they seem almost symmetrical, or if this is something I should be worried about.

Thanks!

Hey, I just read your post. Did you find out anything about your bumps on your Uvula?
I just noticed mine this morning. I use a CPAP and my Uvula moves around allot at night.
Not sure if that is the cause. I hope it's not cancer or anything. I am making an appointment with my ENT. Let me know if you have anything.

Just responded to a similar post by Vonmax.  Again, impossible to say without an exam, but these are relatively common and are often papillomas - warts on the mucosa.

Hey I have two painless bumps on my uvula. it might be connected to deepthroating a guy 4 months ago when it left me with a chafed mucosa on my uvula on the very same place where the warts are now, but perhaps it's connected to chronic sinusitis which i have from an early age. didi you have oral sex with someone who might have hpv?
