A lasting sore throat and bumps on tongue

I had a check up a few months ago and my doctor found bumps at the back of my throat. He asked me if I had a sore throat. I said no and he said maybe it was just part of my anatomy. Recently I've had a sore throat for about 3 weeks now. I flashed a light in my mouth and found weird lups on either side of my tongue. Could this be HPV for a sign of something?

Having bumps at the back of throat is very normal. As the doctor stated, it may be the part of your anatomy or if you are sufferer of any allergies or post nasal drip or any kind of throat irritation, it is likely that you will always have bumps.
