Oral HPV or my imagination
Jan 12, 2001

I was recently diagnosed with HPV. I am concerned as to whether I have it on my tongue. To me my tongue looks different (but I never paid any attention before) I went to a doctor and he said it could go either way...What am I looking for. How does oral HPV look?

There are several good examples of oral warts caused by HPV contained within the HIVdent Picture Gallery. The following URLs should be helpful, the first of which is an example of an oral wart on the tongue:

Hope these pictures help!
