lumps on the back of tongue
« on: August 31, 2014, 03:39:43 PM »
when i brush my teeth, i open my mouth wide and look at the back and at the back of my tongue it is bumpy and lumpy, i can't feel it, it doesn't hurt me or distract me i am just worried if it is a cancer, disease, infection or some type of "-itis" which is going to harm me, i am a 14 year old boy.

I'm not a doctor but I'm pretty sure that's how everyone's looks.

Mollyfin is right. I had the same worry as you a few days ago lol. Freaked out, thought that's it I have oral cancer. Anyways, for once google helped and its normal to have those bumps.

They are elevated taste buds and usually caused by something hot in your mouth. Smoking, drinking hot drinks, and eating hot foods cause your taste buds to elevate.

i just looked up swollen taste buds and it does look a bit like that, i guess it is that, sometimes i eat things when they are too hot by mistake and hot drinks like hot chocolate when they are too hot or not so i probably have it from that
