HPV and OC

I have some questions on HPV and OC. I am 28, hrHPV+, history of cervical dysplasia. I have highly irregular (asymmetrical) tonsils, growths on the left tonsil and white plaques on the right, both of which bleed at the slightest irritation, trouble swallowing like something is caught in my throat. My ENT, who doesn't believe in the HPV link to OC, doesn't want to perform a tonsillectomy...he wants to "wait and see" (we've done the wait and see for 8 months, since last Thanksgiving when I first noticed the tonsil irregularity). I'm waiting on a referral to a tertiary center (I live in the rural southeast) and it's really hard to get anyone who knows about this, as well as which tests to order.
Thank you.

Re: HPV and OC

Hi, I'm not sure what your question is, but if it were me, I'd get a second opinion from an oral oncologist.

Good luck!
