Bump and Patch on Tongue

Posted , 3 users are following.

I have a lesion on my tongue

I went to the doctor and she said that it might be trauma and that I should wait to see if it heals.

It looks better, but I can still feel a bump. Is this bump scar tissue. Will it eventually be absorbed.

Any other possibilities.

Recently a large red patch (not raised) has appeared on the tongue. It does not look like it is connected to the small bump. Any idea what this can be?

    Your dentist is the best person to see with concerns in your mouth.  They have the tilting chair and various mirrors etc to examine your mouth. They can also take an X-ray if needed.  Take care and keep in touch.

    I used to work for a doctor. Patients with mouth problems were always advised to see their dentist and patients with eye problems were advised to see their optician or attend the eye hospital.

    No harm in seeing your dentist for a second opinion.

    Take care.

    Just a note.

    Out of interest, at the side of this page 'Related Information', I see various codes, for example, O, I. Do you know what these letters mean. I have also see many others, including number, for example, 2, 5, 7, J, W, Y, and more.
