Genital warts in the throat

Jan 10, 2012

I wanted to know how likely it is to develop genital warts in your throat. I have all of these redish, flat, raised bumps in the back of my throat, on my tonsils, and small white round bumps in the opening of my throat.

I currently do not have genital warts but these bumps in the back of my throat are worrying me.

Response from Dr. Wohl

These sound normal to me. To be sure I went to the mirror and checked and what you describe sounds like what I saw. I would ask your doctor to peek. DW
