Common Questions and Answers about Tongue cancer look like


Avatar m tn Hey doc went to my docs she said that it doesn't look like mouth cancer to her something about color and etc and said she has diagnosed that in a couple patients thinks it may be from a allergic reaction but still wants me to go see a ENT to figure it out and iam guessing even if there pretty sure it's procedure to refer to specialist with something like this ?
Avatar f tn Hello, The symptoms and the picture looks like geographical tongue which is characterised by irregularly shaped red, map-like smooth swollen patches on the tongue. Discomfort may be treated with a mouth gargle or rinse containing antiseptic and anaesthetic agents. Topical corticosteroids may also be helpful for occasional use eg. triamcinolone in dental paste applied several times a day when required.
Avatar f tn It does indeed look like geographic tongue (benign migratory glossitis). The description you provided fits perfectly into hallmark signs of geographic tongue. The direct cause of it is not well understood. Such condition usually runs in a family and passed from generation to generation. The treatment is currently unavailable and during flare up it is advised for patients to stay away from hot/spicy foods. I believe research did show that some foods may exacerbate the condition.

Avatar m tn i would just like if you could give me insight on the geo tongue and the efficacy of the tests at the op time frames.
Avatar f tn , I hope and pray so hard that these sores don't come back because it hurts and I look like a monster. Also, if a person is a Herpes Simplex carrier, it can manifest itself while on tx. Even if you don't have outbreaks. This tx greatly comprimises our immune system.
Avatar n tn This morning i woke up to go to school like every day and wen i went to brush my teeth i noticed my tongue had turned black. I normaly have like a bad breath white stuff on it that i brush off my tongue, but this time it was black. The day before i had some hot chocolate and a dounut and some of the usual stuff, soda, tacos. A few hours before i went to bed i had heartburn.
Avatar n tn Now about three days ago I noticed my tongue is dry and bright orange, like a pumpkin, I think my tongue is detoxing things, it started when I started taking wellness formula and oregano oil. I have stopped the oregano oil since it must be killing off the natural flora. I don't know what to do.
Avatar m tn Definition By Mayo Clinic staff White tongue is a coating of debris, bacteria and dead cells on your tongue that makes it look white. Although the appearance of white tongue may be alarming, the condition is usually harmless and temporary.
Avatar n tn It's in the middle-back right of her tongue....not at the tip. I'll have to look up swollen taste buds now...hopefully i can see a pic...
Avatar m tn I did start noticing a large mass below my tongue on the right side, when I stick my tongue out it sort of lifts over my teeth and it's easy to see. Maybe related? I had a cancer screening about 6 months ago and it was fine, no cancer. It was more of a general screening though, also, would cancer suddenly appear in a 6 month period like this? I was always under the impression that it's a slow thing that happens over time.
Avatar n tn does not sound anyhting all like cancer. sounds like an irritation fibroma--- look it up on the internet and stop worrying. cancer lesions in the mouth tends to be faster growing (weeks or months) and are not predisposed to developing where there was trauma from things like cheek biting. go to the dentist and let him or her look at it.
Avatar m tn Probably because i scarf food down faster than any one i know. Any way. I looked at it in the mirror and it doesnt look like a normal cancer sore. Its not white, and not raised. It looks like a rubbed the skin raw on my tongue, its red. Its small but its a little painful if it hits my teeth or roof of mouth. Its pretty small too, like 1/4 the size of a dime. And its right smack dab in the middle of my tongue slightly to the right of center.
Avatar n tn Cancer Sometimes the white bump under tongue or any other bump on tongue (for that matter) can sometimes be an indication of a very serious ailment like tongue cancer. Solution Visiting a doctor and getting a thorough check up done becomes imperative if you suspect cancer. It's not just the fear of cancer due to the white bump under tongue that should have you visit a doctor immediately.
Avatar f tn It really does not look like anything I have seen on the Internet for oral cancer but I'm still worried.
Avatar n tn Do you have any suggestions, I have read about thrush, but this doesn't look guite like the pics I am seeing.
Avatar n tn The doctor gave me some fungilin lozenges for oral thrush on the back of my tongue but the course is nearly finished and my tongue doesn't look any healthier. Surely all these symptoms are connected? Any advice would be much appreciated - I do drink a lot of water during the day to keep the throat from drying out and I tried taking ibuprofen to make any swelling in the throat go down but it hasn't worked.
Avatar m tn Hi I have had a white tongue for 3 years....sometimes i forget about it other times it worries me....i developed this thick white patch on my tongue ten days after a sexual encounter for which i believe i acquired hpv....i have had numerous hiv tests up to 3 yrs which are you have any it some times is uncomfortable and I have to numb it out by eating spicy food?..I visited several GP's who to date have no answers....

Avatar n tn I have just noticed that on my tongue I have some raised little areas of flesh, like little bumps about 1mm in diametre flesh colored I have been suffering with a cold for about a week, I just wondered what these little enlarged like taste bud bumps are, and if I should have them look at, they are painless, but I am just curious to know why they've raised a little bit, perphaps they've always been like that and haven't noticed, any advise or information you could give me about this would be muc
Avatar n tn (of course, by this time, I've convinced myself I have oral cancer...browsing on the internet is not a good idea...) --sore throat for a week or so, just irritated, etc. I don't have tonsils, and I frequently get sore throats, so I didn't rush to the doc. Its usually viral. --fever for a couple of days, then I went to the doc. I also got a strange case of pink eye on the same day that I noticed the fever.
1312898 tn?1314571733 Blargh! Like Kelly, I can't imagine getting shots in your tongue - or getting a chunk cut out of it! Glad you're back.
Avatar n tn Also I have the ruff area in the back of my tongue and it comes and goes depending on the acid flow. They look like little bumps in the back of my tongue and it fills ruff when I swallow. What are the symptoms of throat cancer? What do I have to look for?
Avatar f tn Genital warts are caused by low risk HPV and do not become cervical cancer. 2. Abnormal cells on the cervix are not usually cervical cancer and is more often caused by other things. It takes years to get cervical cancer and you don't normally develop it until your 30's or 40's. But, do continue the follow up to make sure things are ok. 3. Your sore throat and swollen lymph nodes are probably a virus like mono; may not be HPV anyway.
Avatar f tn Well that did not materialize and 2 weeks after that started I suddenly felt like my tongue was having issues. I have pain and a burning feeling on both sides of my tongue. It feels swollen and therefore is not working correctly to push food and drink down my throat. I am not choking, but it takes effort to swallow and sometimes it feels like it is going up the back of my nasal cavity instead of down my throat.
Avatar m tn Its idiots like that that make people like us psychotic about hiv. I would like to kick the s**t out of people who go about spouting ignorance like that and pretending to know what they are talking about. Imagine living with this fear for 2 years. I really think I would die.
