My tongue has been tingling for about 9mo its getting annoying it bothers me everyday, I take thyroid meds, I get botox in my upper lip and I have had a face lift I pinpoint the timing when it started any ideas.?

Neurologist

Facelift
it would be unusual to be related to the facelift but possible that there was never injury. see a neurologist to pinpoint injury. It may be something totally unrelated.

Why do I scar so easily now? Doc says no thyroid issue, inflammation or iron deficiency. Hair/nails brittle skin/scalp dry, teeth pains/white tongue.

Nutritional issues

Erysipelas
Have you had a physical with bloodwork? Some of the symptoms can be due to vitamin deficiency. The bloodwork should point out where the deficiency exists.

I had the front and right side of thyroid removed 2 days ago the tip and side of my tongue is numb??

Tongue numbness

Tongue
That is most likely from the anesthesia breathing tube during the surgery, and not the surgery itself- it should pass. However you can sometimes get numbness/tingling occurring around the mouth as a result of low calcium levels after thyroid surgery- this is more common after a total thyroidectomy than a partial. Contact the surgeon to let them know your symptoms.

I have white spot on side of my tongue and lump under chin line i had thyroid removed from cancer? history of cancer

Agreed,

Agreed, you require and examination and possible biopsy to determine the nature of the lesions, especially since you have a history of a cancer. Make an appointment with a board certified oral and maxillofacial surgeon as soon as possible.

Would you be able to see a change if your tongue was swollen I'm always scared mine will swell I have thyroid problems Gerd and vitamin defficiancy?

Tongue swelling

Gastroesophageal_reflux_disease
Not a consequence of problems you stated. Get professional help. See Endocrinologist for medication to control Thyroid Function. See Gastroenterologist for Rx to control GERD. See your GP or a Nutritionist if lab tests show that you truly have a vitamin deficiency. Multiple problems requiring multiple solutions...get help from the Pros...you can't do this by yourself.

I've severe acid reflux can it cause 1 lingual tonsil more enlarged than other had previous thyroid cancer scared of throat cancer or base if tongue?

GERD

Cancer_treatment
Severe reflux can result in the development of Barrett's esophagus; which has an increased incidence of developing esophageal cancer. Upper endoscopy is a simple method for evaluating any esophageal disease. If your problem is severe, you should be on some form of acid blockade such as omeprazole. You may even benefit from some type of antireflux surgery.

Dr. Mark C. Loury answered:

I have under active thyroid and taking Levothyroxin. Lately my tongue and inside mouth are swelling - is there anything OTC which I can take for this?

Need diagnosis

Antithyroid_medication
I assume your TSH is normal. Tongue and mouth swelling can be from meds especially ACE inhibitors. Are you taking these? angioneurotic edema is another cause and rarely can indicate lymphoma. Amyloidosis can cause tongue swelling. Suggest you see ENT or dentist. Severe hypothyroidism causes diffuse body swelling, myxedema, so it's possible from not enough levothyroxine.

Dry mouth and dry blood on tongue and bloody phlegm . can it be caused from thyroid nodule ? Have been diagnosed with a 1cm nodule calcified within .

Not related

Thyroid_nodules
Thyroid calcifications will not bleed into the oral cavity. Dry mouth (and likely dry throat and nasal passages) will often result in blood from the gums or the delicate tissues of the nose. A bloody nose can reveal itself inwardly ("post-nasal drip") or externally when the nose is blown. Have your
