White spot on lingual frenulum, some redness and irritation under my tongue. upper neck sore with right side gland by artery swollen for 2 months????

Salivary stone?

Salivary_gland
You may want to have your oral surgeon examine the floor of your mouth for a possible salivary stone. A stone that blocks the end of this salivary duct can cause swelling and tenderness of the gland it drains as well as the floor of the mouth until the stone is removed. Chronic blockage of the flow of saliva can also cause infection of the gland so visit your oral surgeon reasonably soon.

Dr. Debi Williams answered:

swollen skin tag like flaps have formed on the frenulum of my tongue and has been causing some discomfort for a couple of days now What should I do?

Warm salt water

Tongue
Plica Fimbriata are the fringe-like folds of mucosa on underside of the tongue on either side of the frenulum. Sometimes they become enlarged if the toothbrush hits them during brushing. Usually rinsing with warm salt water for 2-3 days helps. Brush your teeth and gums gently. If not, visit your dentist for further evaluation.

Bite,allergy,infect,

Tongue
Perhaps you bit it and it got swollen; perhaps allergy to something you ate, or a medicine (prescribed or OTC); or a small break in the tongue mucous membrane and infection set in; may be an entity called glossitis, an inflammation without clear cause. Usually it is self-limited problem, and nonspecific Rx, warm saline gargles, antihistamine helps. If persists, dentist, oral surgeon, or ENT doc.

Head-teeth
First we need to know the nature of the swelling and if the swelling is painful how long. So it can be just from Trauma or from growth. Sometime sharp edge of tooth or partial prosthetic that cause ulcer and it grow to tumor. It might need biopsy to diagnose the lesion
