Bumps on each side of Tongue?
God4me1983 posted:
I just noticed a few bumps on the very back of my tongue on each side. I'm really worried and wanted to get an opinion on here. What type of doctor should I seek for this problem?
dabrain01 responded:
did you ever find out what the bumps are?
Gwen Cohen Brown, DDS, FAAOMP responded:
Hi God4me,

No need for concern. What you are looking at is normal anatomy, Circumvallate papilla.

The Circumvallate papilla contain between 700 - 1000 taste buds and are arranged in a "V" shape on the posterior part of the top of the tongue.
