What causes bumps underneath the tongue?


Canker sores may cause bumps underneath a person's tongue. Canker sores are not the same thing as cold sores or associated with the herpes virus. The appearance of a canker sore is usually a yellow or white middle, encased in a red frame. Most canker sores are minor, and the characteristics are typically tiny and egg-shaped. Minor canker sores clear up within two weeks. Major canker sores can last up to six weeks and have very bad scarring. The circumference of a major canker sore is bigger then a minor canker sore. In most cases a person does not require a doctor visit when they have a canker sore.
