What the cause of black spot in tongue?

Many

African_american
Black spots on tongue may be caused by the natural pigmentation of the tongue, but it can also be a warning sign that you are developing a more serious condition such as hairy tongue. I would visit your dentist to have this checked.

Black spot on my baby's tongue? What does it mean?

Black Tongue

Puberty
Black tongue can be an overgrowth of the little hairy papillae on the tongue and isn't harmful. You can scrub the spot with a soft baby toothbrush twice daily & it should go away. (Also, think if you have given anything that could stain the tongue--iron drops, pepto bismal, metal teether)

Should I be concerned about the black spot on my tongue?

Yes

Wounds
Several questions are important: 1) How long has it been there? 2) Is it getting larger? As a general rule, any new lesion that has been there longer than 10 days should be evaluated. Hope this helps

1 tiny black spot on side of tongue, should I be concerned?

Yes

Oral_cancer
It may be nothing to worry about, but any abnormality should be checked and possibly biopsied, especially it is symptomatic or has been there for longer than 10 days. Oral cancer often begins with small abnormalities. See your dentist for an examination.

What anaethesia to use for biopsy of growing black spot under tongue of a 5 y/o?

Talk with an ENT

African_american
Biopsies at this age can be very hard to do. I would recommend having a little sedation in the operating room, so that the experience is not traumatic for the child and it is doe safely.

Tongue lesion. Started about 5days ago. Thought it was from drinking hot beverage, but not definitive. Turned from red to white with black spot under.

Normal healing

Tongue
This sounds like you are going thru the normal healing process after a Burned tongue. It will take about 7- 10 days to heal. If it does not heal, you have pain, or the size of the area is increasing you should see a dentist ASAP.
