Discovered white spots and projections around gum and tongue. Transmitted disease or Cancer?

I have two raised spot that are white on my gums behind my incisors. I have two small finger like projection a little distance away from the raised spots. The two finger like projection does not have a base. I have some hard small whitish bumps under my tongue in different locations on the bottom of my tongue. I feel like my skin under my tongue is changing. Are these things hpv , do I have cancer , would I be able to have a normal relationship even though I do not really are too. The guy that I slept with says he does not have anything or should I say does not see anything. I know he might not have symptoms and I can have symptoms. I am honestly afraid to find out. I finally have been able to say its there and I have to live with it but to find out what it is will only kill me.

Thanks for asking the query,

White spots and projections around gum and tongue can be salivary gland swelling , cystic lesion like ranula or some kind of infection arrising from adjacent tooth or jaw bone .

Oral cancers are caused due to chronic use of tobocco chewing, tobacco smoking , betel nut chewing , intake of hot spicy foods, long standing trauma, ulcerations infections may develop into malignancies this can be confirmed by clinical evaluation.

Exact diagnosis can be made on visual examination of the area and pathological test .
You also require an OPG to confirm the lesion.

I would suggest you to get the candition examined by the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon .

Hope this helps out.
