Tongue growth side

Common Questions and Answers about Tongue growth side


Avatar n tn 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 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.
Avatar m tn I have a white / yellowish growth on my tongue that when cleaned using a tongue scraper comes off in a pasty substance. I previously had a yeast infection caused by antibiotics. It lasted several years and affected my tongue and gut health causing growth on my tongue and diarrhea if I ate any breads or sugar. After going through a long course of anti fungal treatment my gut health appears to have fully rebounded but my tongue still has this growth occurring.
Avatar m tn Hi, Just noticed yesterday a small white growth on the side but towards the front of my tongue. It appears like small pingpoles on the side of my tongue and is painfulf if touched. How can I tell if this is not cancerous.
Avatar n tn My seven year old has a similar growth on the front underside of her tongue. It started out small and looked to be what we as kids called a tast bud sore. Over the course of the past 4 weeks it has grown however from a pin tip size thing to the size of the end of a pen cap. It goes from white to black in color and at times has a reddish tinge in the center. She has complained at times that it hurts.
Avatar f tn I think I have oral hpv, I have a growth on the side of my tongue and in the back of my tongue. The first time I mentioned this to two different doctors 5 months ago they said burnt toast could of caused an irritation and by using listerine I kept irritating it. I stopped using listerine and waiting for the side growth to go away. Then bumps in the back of my tongue developed 2 months after and I still have the growth on the side of my tongue.
794366 tn?1418009395 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?
Avatar m tn I have 5 small bumps under my tongue along my salivary duct it seems. 3 on Left side and 2 on right side of the connection between my gums and tongue. I am wondering what this could be. They are painless, slow growing- if any growth at all and hard, pea-sized bumps.
Avatar n tn Hi, I know I'll have to take it to a doctor soon, but I wanted to ask here first anyway. I've had a number of symptoms of asymmetrical swelling and small lumps around the tonsils for quite some time, which I've seen a doctor about twice, the last time more than a year ago now, but was sent away with nothing more serious than a 20 second inspection and a quick chat. The swelling and asymmetry is more pronounced than before, and slightly tender on one side.
Avatar m tn But today theres a spot on the middle of my tongue that has no white on it at all seems kinda strange theres no whitish tongue thesers just no white moss in the middle of my tongue and on one side of my tongue its just the tongue color redish. this is the first time i ever saw this.but it seems like i have a slight sore throat on that side to when i swallow.what do you think this is?what would cause the white coat to come off my tongue in 2 spots?
Avatar n tn The fimbriated fold under my tongue is sore and swollen. It has a little whiteness at the ebd of it also. I was wondering if this is something serious or not.
Avatar f tn Hi There, Thanks for the comment, however, I think something may have been missed. This is definitely not a 'normal' part of my tongue/mouth, but a growth on my tongue that just popped up. It matches (albeit very few) googled photos of oral warts... Other thoughts? Thanks.
Avatar m tn Its been that way for as long as i can remember.on one side of my tongue right side there like a white half circle and as of yesterday theres a place on the right side of my tongue that the white moss like stuff has just come off of for some reason.I had my dentsit check this a few weeks ago and he looked at it and told me its not oral cancer and not to worry about it.since then i was using orajel anticeptic mouth wash it said use it for only 7 days i used it for 2 weeks guess i used it to long.
Avatar f tn Also for the past 3 weeks i have had lumps on the back of mouth and i went to the dentist and he said that it was the tonsils and that i just need to take them out. I also have a bump on my tongue that i can see and under my tongue that i can feel but can't see and they have been there for the past 2 weeks. I am getting my tonsils removed in 2 weeks. But i am really worried about the lump in neck, and bumps/lumps in back of throat and bump on and under my tongue.
Avatar m tn I have been waiting 19 days for tongue biopsy result and the lab says they are working on it and haven't forgotten me. There was a noticeable bump on the top of the tongue at the time of the bio, and I detected it after my plastic tongue brush kept making a painful feeling on that spot. This pain went on for a month before I bothered to inspect the tongue, since I assumed I was carelessly jabbing the tongue with the sharp edge.
Avatar f tn My question now is, am I also at risk for HPV on my tongue? One time I woke up with tingling in the right side of my tongue. And I notice other sensations there at times. What do you think?
Avatar f tn 00 Pm I checked my tongue, by this time there were a lot more white clusters, but 99.9% of them are on the tip of my tongue, just where the tongue goes from smooth to bumppy. I did however notice 1 white very lonely single bud on the right side edge of my tongue. Help !! Any ideas as to the cause and treat this phenomenon. On a different site I came across an almost similar situation and the person just clipped them off.
Avatar f tn a bad taste in my mouth and the back side of my tongue is very dark. I Googled it and it lists antibiotic use as a cause. Apparently its a combination of yeast and bacteria overgrowth. Anybody have this befoe? Anything I can do for it?
Avatar n tn This past monday I noticed a flesh colored lump, round-looking, on one side of my tonsils. In just the last week I have noticed more growth type looking things on my tonsils. They can be better seen when i tighten my throat. I dont believe they are tonsiliths or whatever those pockets of food are, these are actual flesh. The photo I attaches is kind of bright because of the flash on the camera, so ignore the sides of my mouth and tongue.
Avatar n tn White growth on your tongue may not be connected with your tooth. It can be the result of vitamin deficiencies or yeast overgrowth. It might be worth getting tested for these things if it does not go away after your tooth is fixed. http://www.geographic-tongue-remedy.
Avatar f tn A week ago I developed this round red small spot on one side of my tongue. It kinda looks like the top layer is peeled off a bit. It was vanishing and then suddenly today it got bright red again after I ate some oranges. I am really scared of cancer.
Avatar f tn Hello, I went to an ENT a few weeks ago and the strange areas on my tongue were geographic tongue. But my tongue is constantly white no matter how much I brush it and I have been having a sore throat as well. I am not sure why I am so worried. I brought the white tongue to the attention of the MD, but he didn't think much of it. I think it is odd. If anyone else has had any similar experiences, I would love to hear about them. Thanks for your time!

Avatar m tn over the past 8-9 months my face has gotten significantly darkened with very uneven tanning (my face has become very dark compared to my neck and other body parts). My tongue has also become dark blue in the middle and on the sides. Is this a common side effects of the treatment or I need to do something.
