Probably normal: There are numerous larger bumps on the back and sides of tongue. These papillae have various functions like you taste buds. I would be more concerned about white growths on the side of your tongue since it is the most common site for cancer in your mouth. You may want to google tongue anatomy to compare your findings.

I have genital HPV. I quit smoking 2 weeks ago. I have a small high-raised white bump on the middle of my tongue, and large flat red ones on the back ?

Prob not oral HPV: The tongue normally has various bumps, papillae, etc. "Large flat red ones on the back" likely are normal circumvallate papillae, present in everyone. (Google it, see photos.) Hard to say about the other, but oral warts are rare, so it's probably something else. If you're sure it's new or abnormal, see your doctor or dentist. But it probably has nothing to do with your genital HPV infection. ...Read more
