Hard white Mass on tongue

qwest posted:
I have developed a hard white ball on the side of my tongue. I had a canker sore on the right side of my mouth before this developed on my tongue. The canker sore was on my gums on the right side and the hard white ball developed on the left. Wondering if the is any feed back I can receive as to what this is or what I can do to get rid of it. It does not hurt.

Hi qwest,

Here are some common tongue problems people experience. You might compare your symptoms to those listed to see if any are a match. If this white ball doesn't go away in a week or two, it might be a good idea to talk to your doctor or dentist about what it could be.

Best wishes,
Atti
