I have been having a problem, I just developed it in the past day or so, and was curious as to what it was and if I should be worried. I have a tiny white looking 'string' about 2-3mm long and small string size in diameter coming out of the left part of my tongue. It is a bit sore, and when I move my tongue in a certain way it hurts a bit, but more annoying than anything. Should I be worried? Its not a bump, its a tiny string like white thing coming out of the bottom of my tongue and I couldn't find anything regarding this particular problem. Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks! Smile I'm sorry if this was the wrong forum to post in, as I couldn't find a 'Mouth' forum Smile
