I was diagnosed with low grade HPV about 5 years ago. I've had a few genital warts but nothing drastic and my PAPs have been coming back normal ever since. I have read that the low grade versions produce no symptoms or warts and the high grade can potentially cause cancer. My question is, is it also possible to have oral low grade HPV and have warts or lesions that aren't cancerous? How is oral HPV treated and are there tests to determine whether or not you have it? I've recently discovered bumps in the back of my throat that are painless yet I am worried sick about it. I was just wondering if I could have oral HPV that's been dormant until now since I've never had this issue before. Every time I do a search on the symptom I read about the worst possible case scenario which freaks me out even more! Thanks in advance for any advice on this, I really am scared.
