As of just recently when I was brushing my teeth I noticed somewhat of a bald spot on the right side of my tongue. Now naturally I googled it and the results ranged from nothing to be concerned about to quite concerning. I was wondering if the condition I'm having is something in which I should be concerned of.

Thank you for your time.

You could have a disease of the tongue that causes tastebuds to fall off. I have it and it's no big deal and it's not contangious. Or you could have caused your tongue some trauma.
