Lump under tongue

Hey y'all, I'm a bit concerned about this lump under my tongue. Its not on my tongue but under it at the bottom of my mouth just under my teeth. Its been about three days now, I'm not sure if its getting smaller or just moving down lower about the as round as the tip of my pinky, its under the skin and there is no surface wound, scratch, discoloration or paleness. it doesn't hurt but like anything else foreign in someones mouth one cant help but tongue at it all day...

Sounds like you may have a clogged salivary gland....It's common, and you could compare it to a kidney stone, only in the mouth and not as painful. Sometimes they go away on their own, but if you still have it you need to go see a dentist or oral surgeon.

Hi Jason, I have the same thing that you described. Did you ever go get it checked or did it go away? I've had a small lump under tongue in the same place you described for the last two days but I'm worried it's not going away as quickly as I'd like. Any Thoughts?
