Bump on back of tongue
eajim25 posted:
I noticed last night in the mirror there was a reddish bump on the back of my tongue (http://imgur.com/2rCzsFz). It doesn't hurt or affect me in any way but I am scared it could be something serious. Any advice and should I go see a doctor/dentist?

Hi eajim25,

While we cannot give medical advice or diagnosis on the board, you might want to take a look at this article for information on causes of bumpy tongue. It could be many things, from enlarged tastebuds to a cancer sore or something brought on by trauma. For a proper diagnosis, you should make an appointment to see your dentist. Most mouth sores are nothing to worry about, but if it doesn't go away within a week or two you will want to rule out any more serious conditions.

Best wishes,
