small red painful bump on side of tounge - oral cancer?
« on: August 20, 2014, 11:29:08 AM »
My son passed on his cold to me, so my nose and throat are acting up. I've been sneezing a lot too.

When I work up yesterday I noticed an irritation left side of tongue area but could not pin point it. Finally after 30 mins of looking around I felt a small tiny bump on side of tounge, today i looked in mirror and now it's a dark red tiny bump. Since I spent so much time tampering and touching it, it's obviously more apparent now.

Could this be accidental toot to tounge trauma for sneezing. I called docs yesterday and they said they will make an appointment with ENT. I am now scared of tongue cancer. Does it sound like it?

Nope. Youve just got a red mark on your tongue. Could be from your tooth could just be a sore. Either way I cant imagine its anything serious.

Sounds like an inflamed taste bud.

I'm sure you don't have cancer, you probably just bit your tongue while sleeping and didn't notice it :) That happens to me all the time.

I have had this since Saturday.  It takes a few days but it will get better.  I think I messed up my tongue on jack in the box tacos..  Mine is almost healed/gone...

I had oral cancer and no, this is not representative of OC.
