Hi, I have a cluster of small white/yellow deadskin like bumps on the middle of my tongue, i can't remove them, they don't hurt, what can it be?

Bumps on tongue

Tongue
One possibility is a fibroma, which is a lesion that develops as a result of injury. However, only a visual examination could tell for sure. Anything abnormal in your mouth should be checked by a dentist or an oral surgeon.

Small bumps on the back of my tongue and my throat hurts so.much when I swallow?

Sore Throat

Neck-throat
Usually when people get a sore throat, they start looking and noticing the natural taste buds they have on their tongue. Use a good, non-alcoholic mouthrinse and you should be fine in a few days. However, if the pain gets worse or you feel it more serious, go see a physician to take care of your sore throat.

You need to see a dentist/ MD immediately for proper diagnosis and treatment. Fortunately, the majority of tongue problems are not serious and most can be resolved quickly In some instances, though, a discolored or painful tongue can indicate more serious conditions, including vitamin deficiencies, AIDS, or oral cancer. For this reason, it is important to seek medical advice.

What are the small, ulcer like bumps under my tongue. two were red. The rest were plain. They don't hurt at all, but one that I couldn't see did.

See an oral surgeon!

Pain
Please see and oral surgeon for an evaluation. Ulcers under the tongue are of high suspicion. It needs to be looked at and likely biopsied to see if it is a cancer. Any lesion in the oral cavity that is persistent for more than 7 days needs to be looked at. the sooner the diagnosis the better your treatment options and outcome are.

Would a single small white bump on the side of my tongue be a sign of HIV? Also bump under skin on jawline. Can't tell if lymphnode or zit. HIV or no?

NO!

Hiv
You can't make a diagnosis from a single white bump on your tongue. There are no lymph nodes on your tongue and you don't get zits on your tongue. See a doctor.

I just finished taking metronidazole. Now I have white bump looking blisters on the back of my tongue. Is this related? They don't hurt... What is it?

Lingual lesions

Metronidazole
These may be entirely normal, but the best thing to do is to have a doctor or a dentist examine these and tell you what they think. Without seeing them would only be guessing.

Whether any of the Liver disease will show symptoms like "small skin coloured bumps in penis" and "white colored tongue" ?

Liver Disease & Skin

When liver failure occurs, the skin acts as a major indicator, as one of the most common signs of liver failure is the yellowing of the skin and the whites of the eyes caused by a condition known as jaundice, which can also cause the skin to become itchier. In addition, bruising and the appearance of minor scrapes and cuts that bleed excessively are often indicators of liver failure.
