Bumps on Tongue: This is fully normal. These are two of your taste buds. Taste buds are of varying size and it is often a surprise when we have not noticed them before.

Probably normal: There are numerous larger bumps on the back and sides of tongue. These papillae have various functions like you taste buds. I would be more concerned about white growths on the side of your tongue since it is the most common site for cancer in your mouth. You may want to google tongue anatomy to compare your findings. You may have your dentist examine the tongue, too.
