Pic of tonsil included** look like HPV?

*** it's the lump on the right and a longer lump is growing past the tongue into the throat ***

So I think I have HPV in my tonsils as I have fleshy bumps - not actually growing on my tonsils - but it's just like a part of my tonsil is swollen. I don't know if its a HPV wart - but if it was cancer due to HPV would warts show or not ?

Also what's the chances of being a carrier of HPV if I have had my vaccination before being sexually active ? I have not seen any warts growing on my genital area and at my last Pelvic exam the doctor did not see anything unusual - this was at 8 months after being sexually active.

It is now 2 years since being sexually active and I'm only starting to see these lumps on my tonsils.

Thank you

See a Dr. We don't look at pictures and even if we did we can't diagnosis you.

Ohkay but based on what I've said does it sound like HPV? Since I haven't seen anything on my genitals???

No it does not sound like it.  Why are not seeking medical advice from a doctor in a doctor's office?  Stop posting here and make an appointment with your PCP or an ENT doctor.
