Comment from: SANTHOSH, 25-34 Male (Patient) Published: April 19

I am 30 years old. For the last 3 years I have been suffering with small bumps on my tongue and itching on it. When I feel itching I start biting the small bumps and it starts bleeding. Now for last couple of weeks it has kept increasing.

I have a benign, soft-tissue growth (or tumor) on the underside of the front of my tongue; it (the tumor) seems to be growing slowly. It causes no pain but does interfere slightly with my speech.

I am a tongue chewer and have been since I was young. It seems to be getting worse and now my tongue is really sore.

I don't know for sure how long ago this started, but the tip of my tongue tingles and gets really unpleasant by bed time a lot of days. I do take a lot of supplemental vitamins, but I always have done, so I don't know what could be causing it. I did quit smoking about 7 years ago, but this only started about a year or less ago.

I have a red and sore tongue and get redness in my mouth also. I get soreness on the inside of my lips. I do have gastric problems and at times I have allergic rhinitis.

My tongue feels part sore, part numb.

I've had veneers put in a couple of years ago. Over the last few months the tip of my tongue feels like it's been dipped in bleach and can get painful by the end of the day. I wonder if it is due to the veneer ingredients.

I have had a problem with vaginal itching. I thought I had a vaginal yeast infection and treated it with over the counter medication and now suddenly I have hard, blister-looking sores on the right side at the back of my tongue and the sores on my tongue have little to no pain but, they swell and irritate my throat. I also have ear pain in my right ear.

About 30 years ago one side of my tongue lost nearly all of the taste buds. Half of my tongue was slick. No pain or swelling so I didn't go to a doctor. Problem cured itself in a couple of months. It has not happened again. No known trigger.
