The other day I noticed it felt like the tip of my tongue felt like it was burned. But as far as I remember I haven't burned my tongue. Later that day I had flaming hots ( spicy cheetos ) and it hurt like no other. Usually, those just slightly burn my mouth but this time it felt like I ate 100 jalapenos. Then yesterday I ate spicy doritos and again these chips aren't really hot. But it hurt. Then very early this morning I took a look at my tongue. It's red and the taste buds are a little swollen and I'm getting one of those white bumps you sometimes get.
I'm worried it's tongue cancer. I am a smoker. I have been since I was around 18 or 19. So for about 5 or 6 years. But there aren't any white patches on it or anything.
