I understand your query and concern.
Viral warts can occur in the places u have mentioned, though quite rare.
It can be something else as well and you probably noticed it only now, for example enlarged tonsils or other growth in that area.
An ENT consultation and laryngoscopy with or without biopsy only would be able to clinch the diagnosis.
Hope I answered. Kindly get back for doubts, if any.

thanks. it helped me. could it be oral thrush or a viral infection. i dont have any other bumps in my mouth, just befind my thing that hangs down. so can you get warts inside your mouth or is it really rare.

Thanks for the reply.
Viral Warts can occur in those areas. Thrush is usually associated with white, thick,curdy discharge.
Both can be associated with conditions with reduced body resistance to infection, for example,like diabetes.
Kindly get checked-----. Write back for doubts, if any. i am glad to answer.
Pls accept my answer if there are no further queries.
