How to know that papillae (red bumps) at the back of tongue are enlarged? I noticed them for the first time in my life, dont know if they are OK or no

Probably not: enlarged. The papillae at the back or base of the tongue are known as the circumvallate papillae and tend to be relatively large compared to the other papillae.
