What do you suggest if I have bumps in back of tongue help.. (picture)?

Bumps are normal

Tongue
There are lots of taste buds on your tongue. Small bumps in the front and large bumps in the back. The ones in the back usually are aligned in an arrow pointing forward in the center

Dr. John DeWolf answered:

What causes the back of your tongue to be raised and orange and have bumps?

Might be normal

Tongue
You really need to be seen for a useful answer to this question. If the bumps are arranged in a 'V; shape on the far back of the top surface of your tongue, they could just be taste buds.

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 have raised bumps on the sides of my tongue and on the back of my tongue. Looks like inflamed skin. Doesn't hurt. Looks bad. Infectious?

No

Tongue
No, unlikely. The very far back and sides of the tongue are always bumpy and rough.This is the "lingual tonsil" and is a part of normal anatomy.

I hav ulcers on dorsum and smal red raised bumps on the uper side of tongue exclding the front ulcerative part that I noticed suddenly 3 days back

Tongue ulcers

Ulcers on the tongue are usually aphthous ulcers. There is no known definitive reason, but are often the result of stress, injury (biting the tongue), acidic foods. Ulcers can also be from a viral infection (herpes simplex virus). These ulcers heal by themselves in 7-10 days. See your dentist for an examination and diagnosis of the ulcers and raised bumps.

Hard to determine without a thorough history and exam. Has this occurred before. Meds, supplements, trauma, etc., may cause. If in doubt and if it persists, see a Dr. and/or a dentist

Circumvallate...

…papillae. If they are arranged in a "V" shape it's a normal part of the surface of your tongue. My question is - How the heck do you even see them!
