? papilloma: You need an ENT doctor to make an appropriate diagnosis. But the presence of a bump on either side of your uvula could be a papilloma. This is a benign growth caused by a virus, so called papilloma virus and results in a wart. If they are not inflamed, or cause pain and do not grow in size, no treatment is necessary. But get a more specific diagnosis.
