Can gastric malt lymphoma cause swollen taste buds on back of tongue?

Keep a diary of what you are eating and when you get the taste buds then you should be able to eliminate the culprit.

I have had painless white stuff on back of tongue and swollen taste buds for a few months. I think it is thrush. Will gentian violet cure this?
