Common Questions and Answers about Tongue growth side

I have a growth on my tongue that doesn't hurt. It is located about 1 inch from the tip on the left side. Looks kind of like a taste bud...is flat, same color as the tongue, and does not hurt. Round, about 1/16" in diameter. I also have another one further back that is smaller that is kind of like a flap that is not painless. How do I know if these could be cancerous or not? Should I have them looked at or are they normal.
I have a white growth on the underside of my tongue, it is on the right side. At night, while I am in a deep sleep, an electrical zap (that's the only way I know how to put it) hits that white growth and sometimes the lower jaw on the same side. I wake up with pain that lasts only for a moment. I am taking Advair, Seroquel, Levothryroxine, and an antibiotic for my sinusitis. Does anyone know what this is?
I took my 18yr old son to dentist about 2wks ago because he was having pain on the bottom side of his tongue. He is still having pain & is scared. The dentist said he didn't see anything at all. He thought could be my son is going through a growth spurt, which can cause discomfort on the tongue. I don't see anything abnormal either. My son says it sometimes feels as though he has bitten himself, but he has not. Any suggestions?
My mother has a growth about he size of a marble on the side of her mouth ( between her teeth and cheek). It is hard, like a bone. It does not hurt when touched with the tongue, but is sensitive when touched with the finger. This growth occurred after having she had surgery on a molar on the opposite side of her mouth. I am wondering if you can tell me what this growth may be or if it should be surgercally removed.
Hello. my tongue deviates to the left side. Almost like it is longer on the right side and sits diagonally in my mouth. It don't know if it happened from a surgical intubation.

Is there surgery available to correct the asymmetry.?

This is my first time posting here, but I need to ask someone about this particular problem before I see a doctor (due to the cost of seeing a doctor and not having any health insurance).

It's mild looking, but can be clearly seen in high resolution photographs as a sort of white, velvety coating. The red bumps aren't painful.

I had a growth on my tongue for almost a year. My dentist said I have a fibroma and an appointment was set up with an oral surgeon to have it removed. My question: What is involved with this type of surgery? I was told my insurance would not allow me to be put to sleep, they only allow a local anesthetic. Will it require stitches? Also, will my tongue be sore after the surgery. This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/421316'>spot on tongue</a>.

I have a damaged pituitary and Hashi's. My Growth Hormone blood test is 0.03 [0.01-8.00] I'm a 49yr old female, abnormal on all sex hormones. What is the normal for someone my age? I asked the doc if I need replacement GH and he says he doesn't know. When I called the ins. company about coverage, they asked for a diagnosis and treatment code, and I don't know these. Are there tests that you have to take in order to prove that your pituitary can't be stimulated to make this?
I just posted about one of my side effects being a sore tongue. It's been sore for maybe 10 - 14 days or so. I just noticed that it is now WHITE! Down the center at the back... I saw a post recently saying this is something to be concerned about. What is it?
There's one at the back of my throat, two on the side of my tongue, one on my lip (that looks more like a blood blister) and two on the right side of my mouth. I've only experieced a canker sore once before. I went to the school nurse yesterday for some pain reliever for my headaches and asked her about the sores. She claimed that they could very well be from my "oral trauma" and the blood vessels in my gums and mouth getting ruptured and irritated. Is that true? I don't know.
I can't feel a similar growth on the other side though I can't reach back as far with my tongue on that side, it's only because I have an abnormally large tongue that I can feel that far back on the right side. It's hard to say if it's any bigger than when I first noticed it, I'm increasingly aware of it when I feel in that area, though that might be psychosomatic. The reason I describe it as a 'strange' growth is its shape.
I am always trying to 'pop' my own neck to relieve pain/stiffness at the base of my skull...on the left side... Now, my tongue... I guess about 10 days ago, I started biting my tongue.. You don't really consider that a symptom of anything, but it happened 3 or 4 times in a week. I went in the bathroom to see if it might be swollen...upon saying 'ahhhh', I discover that my tongue 'pulls to the left' coming out of my mouth. I can straighten it if I focus, but part of it... in the middle...
Hello, Today I looked at the under side of my tongue for the first time in I don't know how long. Maybe forever. And I noticed the presence of quite a few fleshy painless skin growths. Could this be warts or skin tags, or . . . ? Is it something to be concerned about?
I do have 2 teeth with cavities in the back of my mouth, which I think I have had for a while (one on each side, actually below where the lumps are) but the dentist didn't think either of them were THAT bad, but should be filled as soon as possible, though due to me not having any insurance he didn't see any reason that with proper personal dental care it couldn't be taken care of a little bit later when things were more financially stable and I had my insurance issue settled..

at Children's Mercy in Kansas City is going to re-evaluate his growth next month and tell us what she thinks we should do considering growth hormones. What would your recommendation be on giving a child with CdLS growth hormones? Do you think they would help? He is high functioning with his syndrome (mild to moderately affected), with speech being his biggest struggle. I had heard somthing about growth hormones helping speech (specifically tongue coordination). Is this true?

My tongue has also began to feel rough, and today I noticed small little red dots, no bigger than a pin head, scattered on my tongue. Most of them were on the left side, while there were a few scattered on the top of my tongue. My tongue feels very rough, and hurts, and more and more throughout the day, the harder it is for me to talk because of my lips and tongue. My throat is still paining me as well. If anybody could help me, I'd appreciate it a whole lot!
