May things: Unfortunately, those symptoms may be connected to many different things. It could be anything from a simple viral infection to the first stage of infection with hsv (primary herpetic gingivostomatitis), to a bacterial infection, and on and on.

Probable virus: This is most likely the beginning of a viral upper respiratory tract infection which usually goes on to a head cold and runs its course in several days or a week without any specific treatment. However if the sore throat worsens and there is no head cold symptoms, a rapid throat culture is recommended to look for strep throat which requires antibiotic treatment. Meanwhile use lozenges and Tylenol. ...Read more

Prevention,: Prevention, Prevention! It could be normal anatomical structure, but because of the smoking history, cancer screening is warranted. If you smoke or use tobacco products, get help to quit (e.g. medication, acupuncture, hypnosis), moderate alcohol consumption and see your dentist regularly for check-ups, cleanings and cancer screening exams. ...Read more

Tough to say: without a visual of what you are describing. It's very possible that it's a normal condition of the tongue because there are indeed many bumps on the tongue.
