What are these lumps under my tongue?

Edited , 4 users are following.

I've noticed these lumps under my tongue 2 weeks ago. For the first days, my tongue felt irritated from these bumps... but after 3 days or so, it felt fine and wasnt as irritated. i still have these bumps tho.

i also began feeling an irritation under my tongue again. I feel like its only one bump that feels irritated.

Does anyone know what these bumps could be? Lie bumps? Fordyce glands?

does this have to do with food/diet?

i also have had mono for 3 months ... so im not sure if it has to do with that

THANKS!!

      I have the same exact thing and ive been trying to figure it out for a month now!! My doctor said it wasnt cancer or anything like that and that its like my taste buds or something? Thats funny you said you had mono and my brother had it and i drank after him months ago. Idk if i have it too but im going to the dentist monday to have them check it out again to just make sure! This is the first post ive really seen anyone with the same thing as me! I just got a cordysol type mouthwash and i just tried it tonight im hoping it kinda works. Let me know if you figure out anything!!

      i dont think its cancer! im an overthinker, and i didnt really worry too much about it being cancer.

      i dont know if if has to do with the food i eat??

      Yeah ive been worrying about it too but i dont think its cancer either I over react a whole lot haha! My specialist said it definitley wasnt. What kind of food do you eat? I eat very badly to be honest! I dont eat healthy really but i love healthy food. Ive been using a cordysol type mouthwash and its helped a little. Its colgate peroxyl mouthwash you can get it at walmart! He did recover from mono, I dont think i caught it though ive had no symptoms and i went to the doctor a few weeks ago. Let me know if you figure out what it is! Ill let you know what my dentist says!

      Ive only used that mouthwash about 3 or 4 times and I had a lot more bumps than you have and i even had a couple of tiny white patches on my tongue and i had lie bumps all on the back and side of my tongue!!! That mouthwash has improved my mouth so much! The bumps have grown smaller and my tongue used to be more red and everything. My tongue is more pinkish now and the lie bumps and white patches are gone!!! If i were you I would invest in that mouthwash! At most the big bottle of it is just about 6 or 7 dollars and if you want the smaller one its about 4 dollars! I should of gotten it a long time ago! I feel so relived and a big weight has come off my shoulders. I wish you good luck with your mono situation and I will pray for a speedy recovery for you! If you would like to privately message me youre more than welcome to!
