bubble/sore under tongue
acoreana posted:
My 7 year old son has a bubble/boil that appears and disappears under his tongue. It is not painful, it comes and goes, in several different sizes. I'm not certain if it has fluid inside or not. It is round and firm to the tough. Has anyone out there experienced this before?
Rod_Moser_PA_PhD responded:
Just because someone may have experienced similar lesions under the tongue does not really imply that they are the same.....every person is different. Please have you son examined by his pediatrician or a dentist during one of these events....this is really the only way for him to be properly examined or diagnosed. A posted description, no matter how thorough, is not the same as a hands-on examination.....
