ORAL WARTS
Jan 24, 2002

I RECENTLY DISCOVERED THAT I HAVE A FEW BUMPS ON THE BACK OF MY TONGUE I SHOWED THEM TO MY DOCTOR AND I TOLD HER I WAS WORRIED OF HPV SHE SAID THAT IT IS NORMAL TO HAVE BUMPS ON THE TONGUE IS THIS TRUE?

Response from Dr. Reznik

Yes, it is normal to have two rather large bumps on the back of your tongue. These "bumps" are part of the normal anatomy of the tongue and are called circumvallate papillae.

Take care,

DR
