Painful Lump in Tongue?

Answer

A painful lump in the tongue can be caused by many things. Often the painful lump is caused by an ulcer, which can be treated with medication, but most often will go away on its own. Other causes of lumps in the tongue can be salivary disease, skin abscesses, reactions to medication or foods, dehydration, hematoma, bruising or injury to the tongue, bacterial infections, and sometimes, mouth cancer. If the painful lump does not go away and the pain worsens, one should seek medical advice.
