Bumps on floor of mouth

Posted , 5 users are following.

 Posted 3 minutes ago I have approximately 5 small bumps under my tongue along my salivary duct it seems. 3 on left side and 2 on right side of the connection between my gums and tongue. I am wondering what this could be. They are painless, slow growing- if any growth at all and hard, pea-sized bumps. -I saw an oral surgeon about a year ago and they told me to just suck on sour candies and gave me a prescription to reduce swelling. -I also saw an ENT doctor and they told me that the structures in my mouth (gland ducts) are just larger than other peoples' ...but I'm still skeptical. Are these professionals right? -pictures attached

    Hey Zachary, I've been looking everywhere for someone with a similar situation as mine. Were you ever able to figure out what it is? I will say that I smoke a pipe quite often. I'm not sure if that's the culprit or not however. I'm just hoping this is no form of mouth cancer I have! Please get back to me if you don't mind. I'm very concerned right now. Thanks much!

    Hi Zachary!

    I was wondering the same thing too tonight and I think I have found my answers after some research. You're probably fine.

    Totally just joined this forum to calm you down. Lol...

    What you have is probably Fordyce’s Granules which occurs in about 80% of the adults. Hope this helps! smile
