All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Talk to the doctor who ordered the tests. Having said that, the result is not a cause for concern. If you have oral issues, like a tooth irregularity that may be rubbing against the tongue see your dentist. Wish you good health!
