Common Questions and Answers about Tongue growth treatment


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 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 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 Black hairy tongue can actually be any color. Look it up and read about treatment. It is a benign and treatable condition. You will need to increase your oral hygiene, decrease sugar. Neem mouthwash would help I'm sure. Maybe tea tree oil toothpaste. Other things treat it as well.
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 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 m tn A mucocoele is caused by blocked salivary glands and appears clear or as a blue tinged growth. Tooth abscess can cause painful bump on the roof of mouth. Treatment will depend on the underlying cause. See a doctor and get it examined.I will recommend you to see an oral surgeon for a confirmation of the diagnosis. Do keep me posted. Best luck and regards!
Avatar m tn This is a thickening or growth that occurs in the inner part of the mandible. No treatment is usually needed unless they interfere with the normal functions or you need to use a denture or prostheses. The possible causes of white coating on tongue could be oral thrush which is an overgrowth of yeast in the mouth causing white spots to occur on the tongue, gums, roof of the mouth and the inside of the cheeks.
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.
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 n tn I'm 44 years old. I have a hard bony lump/growth underneath the gum, behind my lower front teeth, in front of my tongue. It is very hard, does not hurt and has been very very slowly growing towards my tongue over the years. It is not growing upward. I am not a frequent visitor to the dentist (lots of bad experiences as a youngster).
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 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 I had unprotected oral sex with a not too well known younger male and developed a small white growth on the side of my tongue. I thought I bit it because I have done that in the past. After a week I went in and got shots (yesterday) and was diagnosed with a 1:1 (what is that) and they said it must have been recently contracted. My question is, having 3 partners in the past three weeks, how far back should I go back to notify other partners?

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 f tn One month later I have a bigger growth in the line under my tongue and inbetween the V-Portion of my tongue and then some growths on the actual V-Lines under my tongue. They are all flesh like. What do you guys think, what could this possibly be??? I am concerned they could be warts but at the same time I think the doctors know more than I do. Also, the bumps are painless.
Avatar f tn If she had a little bit of growth, maybe your tongue (one of our more sensitive body parts and always protected) just found it too rough. You could ask her to continue to shave but to abstain from using the lotion, and give the theory of stubble burn a test.
