Lump under the tongue

Common Questions and Answers about Lump under the tongue


Avatar n tn 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? I have a doctor's appointment next week for something unrelated....should I talk to my GP about this? Thanks so much!!!
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar f tn I have had a lump under my tongue towards the back of my mouth for a few weeks. I can't see it but I can feel it under my skin and have to get my finger right back under my tongue as it is really hard to find. I went to my dentist today, who is referring me to a specialist at the hospital. Now I am scared, is it something serious?
165308 tn?1323190145 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.
Avatar m tn 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. Surgery has been suggested but his Mum is unlikely to be able to afford this and I am not sure its absolutely necessary. I have been sent some pictures of the offending lump if anyone is in a position to view them .
Avatar f tn 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?
Avatar n tn i have a lump (the size of a fat lima bean, maybe slightly bigger) under the left side of my tongue. prior to my dr.
Avatar m tn Hi, I have this lump under my tongue which I got a few days after a sharp crisp crumb got stuck there, I checked on Google about lumps under tongues and all it says is cancer, I'm thinking it's an infection but I don't know, the soonest dentist appointment I can get and have is for next month to discuss whitening after my last visit for a filling. Any ideas what this kind of lump is and how to get it away?
Avatar f tn I just recently felt lumps under my tongue, when i looked at the gum tissue located under my tongue there were about 6-7 lumps in clusters of 2 and 3 under my tongue, attached to the gum. The lumps on the side, look red,and a little whitness of the gum surrond the tissue. Directly down the center of the gum under my tongue are two lumps closely settled together, they too look reddish and a bit white?......What could this be?
1372123 tn?1280753511 I recently saw a dentist who did a Oral Exam and found a lump under my tongue. I had been complaining about my gland hurting and its not the first time, Infact its happened several times, since like 3 to 6 moths ago but never with like a cold or anything. I did see my doctor and she wants me to see a ENT specialist after my second visit with her cause it wont go away. Its been a month now since the discovery of this Lump. My Dentist wants me to see an Oral Surgeon.
Avatar n tn 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?
Avatar f tn There are also over the counter peroxide rinses that you can try. These are available in most drug stores. If the lump is not open, or does not appear white if you look at it, and does not clear up in the next couple of days, you might want to have it checked out by a doctor. Sometimes a lump like that can indicate an infection or a blocked saliva duct. If that is the case, a doctor could prescribe the appropriate treatment. I hope you are feeling better.
Avatar n tn He said to wait until the new year and come back and we can do the HIV test. As of now the lump/sore underneath my tongue has come down and it is not hurting at all. I had the H1N1 vaccine shot the same day I saw the escort. Yesterday morning, I started getting mild body aches, headaches, and sore throat. Rest assured that I did not have intercourse with the escort. She did perform Oral on me but it was protected.
Avatar m tn yesterday it felt like i had something stuck under my tongue so i looked at it and saw a small growth and just figured it was a blister and left it alone. well, today it was still bothering me and, figuring it was a blister, i decided to pop it (not my brightest idea apparently). so, it's not a blister. i poked it several times with a needle and nothing came out. it's more like a fatty deposit or something. it's a clearish white color and a round, bump-like shape.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar f tn Hello and hope you are doing well. If the swelling is below the tongue and visible in the mouth, its likely to be a salivary gland like the submandibular gland. If the swelling is present along the jaw line, underneath the skin, then they are likely to be lymph nodes. And lymph nodes are usually multiple. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
1830304 tn?1317887383 I have had a small round lump under my chin ( not near my Adam's apple...It's more towards the underside the tongue) for more than a year. Like most men i am hesitant to see a doctor about it, and just brush it off. But it's been there for so long now that i am starting to get really worried about it. When i first found it it seemed like an inflammation because it got pretty big for a while, but then shrunk in size and has remained that way since.
Avatar n tn now it is back... it is right under the tip almost at the front of it on the underside. it is irritated also, so always sore, but that may be because it is always scraping my teath because of where it is. anyways i also had a spot "white" lack of pigment in a circle appear to the right of my right eye. not sure if these coinside with each other.

1632125 tn?1299867388 I have a lump about the size of a nickel don't know where it came from But would like to know how to get rid of it. It's not sore but irratating as hell.
Avatar n tn He prescribed an antibiotic to get rid of the thrush and said that he would see if the medication had any effect on the lump within the tongue. The thrush was completely cleared up a day and a half later. The lump was completely gone after just a few days. Fortunately because he said that if it didn't go away, he would have to cut it out and send it for a biopsis.
Avatar m tn Everything was fine at work, then all of the sudden under my tongue at the floor of mouth started hurting i think a gland or something, then it started hurting in the back right under the tongue to the side. I got to look in mirror and didn't see anything. Then a instant sudden lump started forming under my chin on my neck throat area. It felt like a tumor but would think tumor just doesn't pop up like that. The lump went down about 15 min after it formed.
Avatar m tn Ok. I have a lump on the underside of tongue, kind of like a fliud- filled sac, which is slowly increasing in size. About 1cm long at the moment, cylindrical. Dentist said he's never seen anything like it. Does anyone have ideas about what it is that I could suggest to him? A blocked saliva gland would be nice to know, but are they on the underside of tongue? I don't know to be honest, hoping it's not cancer or something. 20 year old non-smoker.
