That's possible: It is possibly related to bruxism or grinding/clenching of your teeth, which is not that uncommon. Sometimes you can nip the side of your tongue....then it swells and is more easily bitten again. Bruxism is considered a sleep-disorder related to unconscious muscle contraction. Dental treatments include mouth guards or correction of your bite. Stress management and muscle relaxants may also help. ...Read more

I am prone to this cold sores and even have one now about three days ago I noticed a small bump on the left side of my tongue it is not painful I was just wondering if it could be a cold sore spread into my tongue or my health anxiety makes me think it's

Not a cold sore: Cold sores occur on the outside of the mouth/borders of lips, not in the mouth and are caused by the herpes virus. Canker sores, which are not caused by the herpes virus occur in the mouth, and are typically painful. This could just be an enlarged tongue papilla, which is common and not a problem. Have your doctor check it to be sure. ...Read more

Sore throat: The commonest cause would be an early viral infection which may develop into a head cold.

Dr. Can check throat: Throat pain can be from strep throat (antibiotics are needed), a cold or influenza (antibiotics usually not used), or from some other cause.

Allowing anything out of the ordinary to linger is not advisable. Please have the lesion evaluated. ...Read more

Have a pea size bump on tongue. A bit brown and hurts. Should I be concerned and yes I am a smoker?

Lesion on tongue: It could be an inflamed taste bud. Anything that is inflamed will turn brown due to the smoking itself. I would have an ENT check it to make sure it is nothing. Do not worry, it does not seem that big by your description. If you need larger removal, worst case scenario, it may not affect your speech and swallowing. The sooner your check it the sooner you will not worry about it. Feel better! ...Read more
