Cancers Question

User Profile

About a week ago, I noticed there was a bump on my tongue at the time it didn't hurt, I just noticed it was there.. so I did some googling, and realized this could be a tastebud of some sort, so I did the stupid thing and tried to pick it off like a dummy, I shouldn't of did that, because it swelled three times the size, and hurts off and on, and it isn't going back to normal.

What worries me is that what I messed with was a pre-cancerous bump of some sort, and I just sorta activated it by messing with it. It's about the size of a pea, maybe a little smaller, I do have a doctor appt March 4th.

For your convenience, I did upload a picture:

Hello and welcome to EHF !

I went through your query and i want you to know that manipulation of the bump was mistake and bigger mistake was correlating your symptoms with google. Just consult a local physician or dentist and let them have a look. Supportive home remedies will help.

Take care
