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

Not typically

Lymphoma
Gastric malt lymphoma is usually characterized by being localized to the stomach alone. The back of the tongue is a part of another lymphatic region known as Waldeyer's ring and people can develop lymphoma there, but swollen tastebuds is not a common appearance for lymphoma. So they are not guaranteed to be related. If you have a gastric MALT and are suspicious, see an ENT.

Taste buds on back of tongue are red, prominent, swollen, but painless. They form a V-shape, but look different than normal. Should I see doctor?

Inflamed tissue

Sodium
These are your circumvallate papilla( taste buds) and they are inflamed. Warm salt water rinses and time will heal.

I have swollen taste buds on the back of my tongue. Also chronic sinus issues, but bumps are new. They're not painful, normal tongue color. Allergies?

Not itching and thus unlikely to be from allergies. If they don't go away after 2 weeks or get worse , see your doctor since they do not appear to pose any immediate danger.

Making him feel comfortable by giving him antipyretic such as tylenol and encouraging fluid intake would be all he needs. Be patient, viral illness generally runs a few days.

There are many possible causes of your problem. Unfortunately, we can't diagnose the cause over the internet without a thorough medical and dental history and personal clinical examination. Start by seeing a General Dentist or Oral Surgeon if you want to know what is causing it and how it can be treated.
