Is it normal to have small bumps under your tongue?

Small bumps

Head-cheek
Yes it can be normal but without more information and evaluation it is impossible to tell if it normal for you. There are many salivary glands in the lips, cheeks, under the tongue and if you rub your tongue along those areas you will feel the bumps that are those salivary glands, but if the bumps are something you never noticed before you should have them evaluated to be sure.

Dr. Thomas F. Yash answered:

When I stick out my tongue was far as I can I have two raised bumps on each side at the back. Is this normal?

Probably normal

Tongue
There are numerous larger bumps on the back and sides of tongue. These papillae have various functions like you taste buds. I would be more concerned about white growths on the side of your tongue since it is the most common site for cancer in your mouth. You may want to google tongue anatomy to compare your findings. You may have your dentist examine the tongue, too.

I was elbowed in my jaw/cheek last night and now I have 3 tiny red bumps on the left tip of my tongue. Is this normal? How do I treat this?

Possible cold sores

Peanut_allergy
Trauma to the tongue can cause an activation of th HSV1 virus and lead to small vesicles or bumps from cold sores in this area. If this is the cause, it can be treated with oral antiviral medications. See your dentist or dermatologist to evaluate and treat these lesions.
