Genital Warts under tongue?

Hello,

I was diagnosed with genital warts about 7 months ago.  Since then, it has basically cleared... only been clear for a month so I'm not saying I am fully cleared or anything.

However, last month I noticed some growths under my tongue, about 3 warts/flesh like growths inbetween the V-Portion of my tongue and then some growths on the actual V-Lines under my tongue.  They are all flesh like.

I went to my dermatologist who then said it was irritation.  After applying salic acid as recommended nothing really happened.  He then consulted with an ENT who looked at me for about 5 seconds and said it was not genital warts and nothing to be concerned with.

I saw him one more time and he basically said it was just natural growths that won't go away and some people get them and some don't.  He said it is absolutely not a disease, and not warts.

I am skeptical because at first he said it should go away and then he said it won't go away and not to worry.  He knows I had/have genital warts.  I am also confident in his diagnosis because he looked at them and an ENT briefly looked at them and they said they are not warts and not to worry.

What do you guys think, what could this possibly be???  I am concerned they could be warts but at the same time I think the doctors know more than I do.  Also, the bumps are painless.

you've been seen by medical professionals who did not feel that this was hpv going on. ( fyi genital warts appear on the genitals, you wouldn't call it genital warts in your oral area ).  Continue to follow up on this with your provider(s) as needed.

Grace,

Thank you very much for your response.  Maybe I'm just skeptical because I'm working in a foreign country (Saudi Arabia) and have not been able to see my doctor... so I went to some hospital here where I saw those physicians.

Do you have any idea what this could be?  What do oral warts typically look like and where do they occur?

Like I said before, there are some bumps on the V lines under my tongue and about 3 flesh colored bumps in-between the two lines. They do not hurt at all.

As a PA, have you ever heard of such condition?

Glad to hear you found your problem. Genital warts wouldn't be in the inside of your mouth.
