worried, transmission question
Today I discovered a whitish area on the side of my tongue. I don't want to call it a lump, because it is not warty or round, but it is definetly slightly raised, and white. I am worried that it could be genital warts of the mouth, though I have never actually examined my tongue as I did today and have no idea whether it's aways been there or not or when it appeared. I may be overreacting, but I am very worried about passing it along to my friends, which is why I ask, is it possible to pass genital warts through smoking, ie, the passing of pipes or cigarettes/joints? Im terrified and avoiding contact with people.
