Only one side of my tongue is swollen towards the back of my mouth and it hurts to chew because of it. What could possibly be the cause?

Tongue

Head-teeth
Possible local trauma from bite or teeth rubbing on tongue. Best to have it looked at by your PCP.

Swollen tongue

Impossible to say without an examination. A swollen tongue can occur due to injury, different diseases, or tumors. See your dentist, an oral surgeon, or an ENT doctor.

My son had soreness on one side of his tongue, which followed a swollen roof of mouth. Now has off and on sore throat and swollen gland on one side .

Evaluation needed

Call_physician
It would be prudent for your son to see a physician to determine the cause of these symptoms and then appropriate treatment if necessary. It could be a viral or bacterial infection or something else. Only a personal clinical examination can accurately determine the cause of these symptoms.

Right side of my tongue is swollen and it's difficult to swallow. What to do?

See MD immediately

You should seek medical attention immediately. Swelling in the tongue has the potential to cause an airway issue and can lead to a life threatening situation. Given your previous history with allergic reactions, it is possible that you are experiencing allergic type symptoms and a medical evaluation is highly recommended.

Need Check Up ASAP

If there is a growth that suddenly developed under your tongue, see your dentist right away and from there, s/he can evaluate through an x-ray and clinical exam. If it is something beyond that is not merely transient or an infection that cannot be treated by an antibiotic, you will more likely be referred to either an an oral surgeon or an EENT for a possible biopsy for proper diagnosis..

Under my tongue is swollen! Especially on my right back tongue, it's buldging out, and on that side is a big lump/white patches! Possibly not cancer??

Possible pre-cancer

any white patches or lumps could be pre-cancerous -see a dentist for an exam and possible biopsy.
