I have 7-8 white bumps on the top of my tongue. I had 4 last

This answer was rated:

I have 7-8 white bumps on the top of my tongue. I had 4 last year that an oral surgeon removed and biopsied. It came back as simply "papilloma." Is that the same as HPV? I have been on oxycodone now for several and also Fentanyl patches for chronic migraines. I'm also on several heart medications. I've suffered with dry mouth that I think is related to the oxy.

Is the oral surgeon the right doctor to see? Ialso recently had an oncolgist look at them. Nobody seems concerned but me. They are embarassing and they are frequently sore, not terribly, but enough to be uncomfortable.

Is there anything I can do to stop them once I have them removed again?

Hello,

Mysticdoc :

Thanks for your question.

Mysticdoc :

Pailloma is not the same as HPV virus.

Mysticdoc :

Papilloma means enlarged tongue glands.

Mysticdoc :

This is a benign condition.

Mysticdoc :

Dry mouth can be treated by the oral surgeon.

Mysticdoc :

If not, you can see a rheumatologist for further work up for Sjogren's syndrome.

Mysticdoc :

Steroid paste like fluocinolone in orabase paste can be used to help with your symptoms if thee is no infection.
