Concern: I don't know what you removed but it probably was not a single taste bud. Taste buds on the top and sides of your tongue are microscopic. Your tongue should be examined to try to determine what it is that you removed, and what damage was done by the original lesion and by your self-directed surgical procedure. Please immediately see an Oral Surgeon.
