oral papilloma

Hi - I just had an oral "squamous papilloma" removed from my palate. The microscopic examination from the lab says "benign squamoproliferative lesion surfaced by hyperplastic fronds of squamous epithelim, no evidence of dysplacia or fungal colonisation"

Any idea what type of HPV (I assume) caused this, what does it mean for me / my partner etc

Any help appreciated

Keyword benign   Also meaning non cancerous and most likely is hpv 6 or 11. They generally don't return or spread in normal healthy immune systems.  You should be good to go.

It sounds like a low risk strain, therefore not a cancer causing strain
