Feels like lump on back part of tongue/throat chiropractor says I have nerve-endings there. What could this be? Was in auto accident & having neck sps

Meaningless: You have nerve endings EVERYWHERE. That tells you nothing about whatever's bothering you. It's like explaining a heart attack by saying there are nerve endings in the heart. It explains nothing except that your chiropractor's a quack who knows as much about the human body as you do. Chiropractic is 100% bogus. Stay away from those charlatans; they're a threat to your health. ...Read more

There's a lump on the back of my tongue and its smooth to touch and sore it's not bleeding or anything what could this be.

There's a lump on the back of my tongue and its smooth to touch and sore it's not bleeding or anything what could this be.

Get it checked.: We have normal structures on the tongue that are smooth and lump like. These do not usually hurt and the texture is like surrounding tissue. If you have a lump that is tender then it should be checked. If the doctor thinks it needs a biopsy then you should get that done. Good luck. ...Read more

Have had chronic post nasal drip for 3 weeks. Have noticed a small hard lump on the back of tongue near throat and throat is sore when I swallow. Any?

Drip unrelated: Post nasal drip does not induce growth of an intra oral lesion. Tumors on the tongue most often occur in the anterior 1/3. These appear as ulcers on the lateral side of the tongue. A small number of lesions grow in posterior 1/3 just before the epiglottis. It can be felt as a firm mid line lump and should be checked by H&N surgeon. If bx +, excision is by transhyoid pharyngotomy. ...Read more
