Bumps on tongue and back of throat

Common Questions and Answers about Bumps on tongue and back of throat


Avatar n tn today i took a flashlight and found tons of bumps on the back of my tongue and lining my throat. i was worried what these were and if i should go to the doctor or just wait it out. they are red, kind of big, and there are tons of them. they hurt really bad, feel something in my throat, and it hurts to swallow. i also might have a fever and have been sneezing alot with a stuffy nose. im not sure if these symptoms match, but im worried about what i might have.
Avatar n tn It was really dry and my throat sort of hurt. Since then, now it has gotten better but I still have bumps on the back of my tongue. Now I must tell you, I was addicted to gobstoppers and sucked on them pretty much nonstop all day and through the night sometimes. Is it too much sugar that caused the bumps? Thanks.
Avatar m tn Fast forward to today-- I have 5 or 6 painless, raised bumps on the back of my tongue, causing me to feel like I have a hair or something back there. I have been looking around the internet (obviously) and it really looks like the pictures of circumvallate papillae I've seen. What I'm wondering is this: what is possible for me to have contracted (and become symptomatic) in this period of time, STD-wise? A bit of background-- the last few days I've had somewhat bad allergies.
1855970 tn?1325827213 The past few days I've noticed bumps on the back of my tongue... they were just visible if I stuck my tongue out far and didnt hurt or anything. But today, one of the bumps toward the left side just feels annoying. Like when a popcorn kernel gets stuck on the back of your tongue... thats what it feels like. I tried using a toothbrush to kind of 'brush' it away, and it didnt work.
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 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 n tn I have been having a stuffy nose when i wake up and have had a sore throat when i wake up and just the other day i looked at the back of my tongue in the mirrorand realized 3 bumps on my tongue in the back of it. I have been takin allergy pills before i go to bed but they have not been helping my sore throat. Are the bumps causing my sore throat and why are there bumps there?
Avatar n tn For about a couple months now i keep noticing bumps on the back of my tongue, only in the rear though. It doesnt hurt when i swollow but my throat seems sore from time to time. I went to my doctor towards the beginning and she said nothing was wrong other than the fact that my tonsels are a little swollen. I'm a very paranoid person and always asking questions about this same problem noticing...is it anything bad?

Avatar n tn For three months now, I have been experiencing what seems to be very small whiteheads/pustules on the back of my tongue and whitish colored throat/mucuousy coating. There are dozens of really small pimple like bumps that concern me. I've seen three doctors about it-I've been tested for mono twice and the results were negative. I've also been tested for strep and that was negative.
Avatar f tn I noticed this morning that I had some small and medium size red bumps on the back of my tongue. My throat is a little sore but nothing bad. Is this something I should see someone about? I was just to the dentist 2 months ago and all was well. I've never had any serious dental issues and have always taken good care of my teeth. Thank you.
Avatar f tn However, I have some small bumps on the very back of my tongue and Im worried they are warts and that I might have them in my throat. They've been there for about 2 years I think, and I haven't had any other symptoms, they don't seem to be getting bigger, but there is a small area of irritation(red tiny bumps?) on each side of my tongue but only on the very back of it. I seen a doctor but she said they were the color of my tongue so they were probably enlarged tastebuds.
Avatar m tn For the past seven days or so I have had these bumps on the very back of my tongue along with this nagging cough. I am a non smoker, but this cough is driving me nuts. I have no sore throat, I just feel this cough come on, I feel like there is something stuck in my throat, but theres nothing there. What could be causing this cough with these little bumps on the back of my tongue. Any help would be appreciated.
Avatar n tn About 3 days ago, I found a canker sore on my lip. Yesterday bumps appeared on the back of my tongue. They do not hurt, but are quite annoying. All i want to do is swallow them. I heard that the bumps on the back of the tongue are a part of normally anatomy, but i can't help but think that they are inflamed or infected. Is there anything I can do at home? If they don't go down in a couple of days, I plan on seeing a dentist. Heres my background: I'm a college student. I'm stressed out.
Avatar n tn Three days ago, I noticed two large white bumps on the very back of my tongue. They hurt like heck, making it hard to swallow or talk. the only thing that releives it is ibuprophen. Could this be some forn of herpes? I have never suffered from cold sores or any other types of lesions on the front part of my mouth.
Avatar m tn If the bumps are on the back of your tongue I would suggest you see an oral surgeon, if they are on your throat see your MD.
Avatar n tn But the other day I noticed for the first time on my tongue, these bumps on the back, I didn't notice any in my throat or on the roof of my mouth. There are different ones. Like the ones in the middle just look like little ones and the ones in the back are big, I took some pictures, I hope they will help. I have a pic in the other bulletin below Picture: http://s98.photobucket.com/albums/l273/maleficentmoon/?
Avatar m tn I noticed a few days ago I have pinkish color bumps that aren't very big on both sides of my tongue on the back they don't hurt or nothing but my tongue do burn a bit on the tip and my throat burns off and on...I am a non smoker...I do have constant musus in my throat I think it is post nasal drip could this be causing it???
1015881 tn?1251158160 It has now been a little over a year since I've had maybe 4-6 pink medium sized bumps on the back of my tongue. When I open my mouth wider, I can see all the way down to the WAY back of my throat tiny bumps all over. And I'm really scared. I noticed these bumps, a year ago and a couple days before I had unprotected intercourse, anal, and oral sex with someone. I'm not sure if that caused it or not, because I don't have any of these bumps on my vagina, or my anus.
Avatar n tn I just tonight found several bumps that are aligned up on the back of my tongue. I have had a scratchy throat, and have been suffering from allergies lately, but have never noticed having these on my tongue in the past. Also, I couldn't find anything like it online. I'm wondering what it would or could be from, and if I should get it looked at?
