Oral Cancer

Pea size bump

01/22/2008

Question:

Last week, I started feeling twitching / spasms in my tongue. Since last night, I have felt a pea size sore bump on the left inside of my tongue. Should i be concerned? Is there anything I can do to help it? I am using the warm water and salt. Thank you.

Answer:

The symptoms you describe unfortunately are not specific for a diagnosis or recommendations. I would recommend that if you are noticing a persistent abnormality, that this be evaluated by an otolaryngologist (ENT) physician who can examine you and give you more specific guidance as to what this might represent.
