Small Fibroma removed from tip of my tongue yesterday w/stitches too. Today my tongue is swollen in and around the that area. Is this common/normal?

When lesion excised, I assume under local, the sutures usually control the incision with minimal swelling. I suspect because of vascularity of area that a suture may have caught a blood vessel and swelling is a hematoma. As such warm gargles may help ...Read more

Key to good surgery: minimizing collateral damage in ways easing healing. ...Read more
