ENT evaluation: This can represent several possibilities including cyst, lymphoid tissue or perhaps most concerning a primary tongue or head/neck malignancy. Should you have a smoking or alcohol use history this would increase your risk for malignancy. This lump should be seen by your primary doctor or an otolaryngologist (ENT) physician. A proper physical exam and history is highly reccomended.
