There are 60 subtypes of HPV, a third of which can be transmitted sexually. Most instances clear up spontaneously though HPV is positively linked to cervical cancer.

Papilloma gums are caused by a virus and grow very slowly and are soft to the touch. You can experience Papillomas at any age, and normally are found on your tongue, lips, your gums or at the corner of your mouth. They are either white or pink in color. You will need a doctor to remove it.

First of all see a dentist to make sure it is nothing super serious, like cancer. Papillomas are a virus and a very common one. These can occur anywhere on your body. They are contagious so I wouldn't be doing a lot of kissing. Papilloma also goes by HPV.
