Really depends...: Since it's not possible to know everything else that's going on with you, the tongue condition warrants being examined by an oral surgeon, dentist, or ENT doctor. White and swollen is not normal and can represent infection from several different causes. Make an appt soon to find out how to treat this.

Abnormity possible: If any size of white spots showed in the oral vavity for some times and you knew that it was not there before, it might be a pathologic lesion and need your attention especially when you noticed a combined swelling. Seeing an oral surgeon or a physician is suggested.
