Common Questions and Answers about Lump on tongue

lump

I have a hard blue/purple lump the size of a pea that appears near the tip of my tongue off and on for more than six months now, seemingly without rhyme or reason. It is visible both on the top surface of my tongue as well as the bottom. It is moderately painful when I first notice it upon awakening and is mildly annoying for the day or two it takes for it to receed. I do not believe it is related to injury (biting) or a specific food or any precipitating event I can determine.
My grandson had a lump on his tongue, was a little raised. The Dr.s said they would watch it. It is on the top of his tongue. Now it has grown over a month to about the size a little smaller than a match head. It looks red, is raised and white dots on it. Who is the best to look at it and if needed removal a oral surgeon or ENT. Does it have to be pediatric.

Immune disorders can also cause tongue bumps. Mouth cancer can cause a lump or area of thickened skin on the side of your tongue. A clinical examination is must. Treatment will depend on the underlying cause. Seek second opinion if the symptoms are severe or persistent. Keep me posted. Best luck and regards!
I have a bluish lump that I just discovered on Sunday under my tongue. When I grab it, which is very difficult, it is round in shape and becomes whitish and bluish and clear. I am very nervous about mouth cancer. Has anyone ever experience this? It is the size of a pea and appeared out of no where. Any advice will be appreciated. I have an appointment with my dentist, but I was curious what others may think.
Hi....I have a small pea sized lump under my tongue on the right side. It's located in the valley of my mouth between the floor of the tongue and the gum line. It is below the tissue. It is painless and has there for 2 years or so. It has not gotten larger. I asked my dentist about it a year and a half ago...but she said it was likely nothing. Is this something I should be more concerned about? Does anyone know what this could be?
Hello, A detailed history and examination is necessary for appropriate diagnosis and management of your condition. A cyst on the tongue presents as a lump under the surface of the tongue. A cyst on the tongue can cause difficulties with swallowing or breathing if they protrude from the surface and grow too large. A cyst on the tongue can become infected .Other possibility is a condition called transient lingual papillitis.
I have a lump on the under part of my tongue. My doctor felt it and said it was a cyst. It can not bee seen only felt. It does not hurt or move. I seems it may be inside one of the salivary glands maybe. I have had it just over a year now that I have noticed. could be longer. Any suggestions?
I have a lump under the left side of my tongue and its getting quite large, 1" lond and deep. I asked family dr. to look at it and she didn't see it at that time when it was smaller.My dentist gave me an appointment for next month. I think its an infection. This is why, last fall I had chest pain and they did a d-dimer to check for clots. The test was very hi but no clot was found. I have gotten painfull joints and I am 33yrs.old.
I looked in my mouth and noticed a lump underneath my tongue and it was very painful to the touch and eating. Now this lump extends the back of my mouth going under my tongue and then connects to the back of my tongue. The pain is now constant and only lessons with ibuprofen. I now also have pain going to my ear and to the back of my head when I move my tongue a certain way, so I have to be careful not to move it that way.
I really don't like feeling this way and just want my mind put to rest so i can get on with my life. The lump is pea size, round, it feels hard and doesnt move. It is not painful. Someones suggested it could be something to do with salivary glands, is this possible? If this is the worse outcome - cancer - what happens next? I know I am thinking ahead too far and thinking the worse but I don't know how to put it to the back of my mind and relax until it is sorted.
My friends son has developed a lump under his tongue which is painful and has put him off his food hence weight loss. She lives in Indonesia where medical care is costly and does not appear to be up to the standards you would expect. He has been prescribed a steroid ointment (for topical use only ?????) which has reduced the size of the lump but it then returns when the ointment is not used. I have suggested she ask her GP to undertake blood tests fbc ue b12 folate but after that I am at a loss.

3 weeks ago i found this lump at the base of my tongue. It has a foreign sensation and i think it is swelling. I am very worried that it might be something serious. I went to my GP today and he thinks it is normal and not to worry. And he prescribed some steroid cream to put it on. The link is the picture of the "lump". Should i go to see an ENT or a specialist?Should i put the steroid cream?
Hi Dr. Yesterday I felt a sore lump on my tongue, it was red and raised a little. This morning I checked and the lump is still there but now all the little papules (is that the right word!?) are yellowish white. The lump/bump is right in the middle of my tongue. It's sore to the touch and not a very hard lump but rather large for a bump on the tongue, about the circumference of an eraser head. Of course when you put lump on tongue into a google search, the only thing that comes up is cancer.
Then next day she complained about soreness like a whisker burn but I didn't have much for stuble. I also got 1 very small white lump under my tongue ( right on the tie of tongue i think it is called). It has been 3 days now she is fine now but my white spot is still there and only sore if i rub it or touch it but not really bad. What could this be?
The picture does'nt present significant pathology to me except mild to moderate hairy tongue on central dorsal surface of tongue.Hairy tongue is associated with cigarette smoking and poor oral hygiene. Your throat problem may be best managed by ENT.
I recently noticed a small white spot/lump on the left side of my tongue and I am schedule to see my dentist in a day or so. I am 44 and have schewed tobacco and drank for the better part of 20 yrs.

Realy scared and worried.
