Are bumps on tongue normal

Common Questions and Answers about Are bumps on tongue normal


Avatar n tn It felt like a popcorn husk stuck on the back of my tongue and when I looked I found the bumps. Just like you, a couple on one side and about twice as many on the other. No pain, they don't look ulcerated, just bumps. Also, like you, when I researched on the internet, it just scares you what you find. I'd love to hear what you found out about your's and if they have cleared up.
Avatar f tn Makes sense since lots of different chemical reactions from the food you eat. Bumps on the back of the tongue are normal. Here is a link that may help: There are many other links that that one above. I had a sore a few months ago that was inside my lower lip and lasted 12 hours (half a day). It was my paranoid stage when I thought I was suffering from oral HPV.
Avatar n tn At first I thought it was just a blister, but when I looked in the mirror this morning, I found multiple bumps of all different sizes covering the back of my tongue. I know for a fact that I have never had any bumps like this before. What are all the possibilitys of what this could be, where it came from, and how it could be taken care of?
Avatar m tn I have small red bumps all over my tongue. i think they are from when i burnt my tongue but ive never noticed bumps before when i had burnt my tongue. the bumps dont hurt but it looks gross and i want to make sure this is normal.
Avatar f tn I noticed a cluster of bumps on the very back of my tongue. I only see them when i stick my tongue out very far. They are behind the "v" of papillae and just above the epiglottis (the thing that closes over the trachea. i dont know if thats the right term). Any ways, they dont hurt at all, but i just noticed them recently.... Anyone know what these are?
Avatar n tn I have these weird, raised, and various sized bumps on my tongue towards the back and on both sides of my tongue, on the lower half. My tongue feels swollen on both lower sides of my tongue towards the bottom... It is somewhat painful... Just very irritating. Please, someone tell me what is wrong!! I am a very paranoid person in nature and the slightest oddity of my body stresses me out. All I can say for sure is that these bumps are not normal and werent there in the past.
469423 tn?1207509695 Morning, This is going to be a hard one for me to tell you, but I am only reflecting on my situation and everyone is different. I started with the "white tongue" no pain- but my tongue looked weird. I commented to my family all the time. Then the bumps started- then acid then the "burning" I hate to say, but I dealt with that for 2 years with our medical help. No one could help me. Then that is when I started checking on how I could get rid of it.
Avatar n tn it is now 38 days since i had sex last time, i have little sore in my throat and today i noticed small bumps deep on my tongue almost near to my throat, some how it looks symmetric bumps, also i feel like there is white sticky liquid on my tongue unless i drink something , it started to bother me and i keep checking it in the mirror, i have tested HIV Antibody two times now , one after 17 days and one after 34 days and both are negative and my CRP was 3 which is in the normal range.
Avatar f tn I have had problems with bumps on my tongue and mouth several times. For whatever reason these things seem to flare up for me any time I have stress (like from dental work) or if I have been sick, etc. I did have trouble with it during detox and found that gargling with warm salt water helped a lot. It tastes gross and I had to fight back the gag reflex thing, but it really helped take the pain away. Again, I tend to get these occasionally so I was not overly concerned.
Avatar m tn Here is an update. I was looking at my tongue in the sunlight just now... there are flat topped raised bumps on the very far back. They vary in sizes of about a little smaller than a pencil eraser and below. Does this sound like any STD?
Avatar n tn Thank you that makes me feel a whole lot better!! Do you have a lot of them? The hard palate is completely smooth but when i run my tongue towards the back it all little bumps. When I look at them with a mirror and light there are a ton of them all over. Have you ever got them checked out or do you just know they are normal?
Avatar n tn and now one has appeared on the top of my tongue. they are irritating, and when touched, they hurt a little. I don't know what to do, because i have no health insurance or money for health insurance.
Avatar n tn Hey, After looking at a few more images on the internet i also believe that they are filiform papillae... Ive been looking for why they have appeared etc and what to do to get rid of them but cant find any information (Sometimes the internet just doesnt have what you want :P) I was wondering if you knew why they have appeared (They mave have been there all along but ive only just noticed them) and if theres anyway to get rid of them?
Avatar f tn I woke up the following Friday with two bumps on my tongue. The bumps are painful but do not effect the rest of my mouth. Is it possible that I have herpes on my tongue now?
469423 tn?1207509695 This is so overwhemingly common - yet no doctor will put this puzzle together - at least in my luck. After digging for 5 years - I strongly believe this is a side effect of thyroid medications. I lean towards this bieng an imbalance on PH levels within the body with some individuals. HAve you had any discomfort within the tongue itself? Burning - swolleness of anything you can describe? Do you notice dry throat and thirst? Did you undergo RAI treatment after the TT?
Avatar f tn I saw my doctor yesterday for a sinus infection and a few bumps on the back of my throat. He explained lymphoid bumps. He gave me a Z-pak and Flonase pluse said to use Claritin. What concerns me is that one of the sub-epithelial lymphoid bumps (?) is on the mucousal piece that runs in front of my tonsils and I can feel it like something is stuck there touching my tongue. It is also a bit red there. I did show it to the doctor and he said it was nothing to worry about.
Avatar f tn I have this white coating on my tongue for the most of my life. I have been to the doctor for other things and I know they saw my tongue but they never said anything to me about it, neither did the dentists. I don't know what it is but I'll be sure to ask the doctor again about it, if he can't tell me then I'm going to another doctor.
Avatar m tn i had a similar case where i had white bumps on my tongue when i would wake up and in a day or so my tongue would peel as if it had a sunburn. i was told it happen because i ate too much hotcheetos.
Avatar f tn Yes, either that or look up apthous ulcers. This really isn't anything to worry about.
Avatar n tn My 16 month old is teething and I have noticed several white bumps on his tongue. He has been really fussy, will not eat much, and isn't sleeping well. Could you help me with what to do for the bumps... Thanks!
Avatar f tn I also saw a couple of red bumps on top of tongue (deep) today. And there's a little white dot on front tongue (left). I am already going through a HIV scare (had unprotected vaginal sex 4 weeks back)! (Have rashes, muscle pain, sore throat and now this).
Avatar n tn RInse with antibacterial gargle and avoid further manipulation. There are many things that can cause tongue bumps to form, including: trauma, smoking, canker sores, enlarged papillae, cancer and certain medical conditions including diabetes and anemia. If it comes back or if other symptoms occur, it would be best to have this evaluated further for proper diagnosis and management. It is important to determine the underlying cause and to rule out other causes. Take care and regards.
Avatar n tn What would cause a white coating on a human tongue accompanied by a brownish spot in the back center of the tongue with several "bumps" toward the back of the tongue. Teeth were cleaned at a dentists office March 20,2008. None of this was present at the time. A crown has been temporarily glued on over a cavity.
