Could White bumps Under the Tongue be a Sign of Cancer?
I have white bumps under and along the side of my tongue. They dont hurt, I bit my tongue and looked to see how bad it was when I noticed the bumps. Could it be cancer, herpes, or a reaction to medicines I have been taking for a cold?
It is really not possible to make a diagnosis with your description. If the areas are still persistent, then you should have it examined by an ENT (ear, nose, throat) professional who can make recommendations.
