Oral cancer: If you're worried about oral cancer, see your Dentist for an oral cancer exam (can't be done over the computer). Know that if you do not abuse alcohol and don't smoke (anything), your chances of oral cancer are relatively low. So go see your Dentist if for mother other than peace of mind...priceless.

Tough question: "Red bumps' is not a diagnosis. A professional has to actually examine you to determine the cause of the red bumps, and then advise you as to treatment. See you General Dentist or an Oral Surgeon to begin the diagnostic process.

Probably normal: Bumps on the back of the tongue may be normal anatomy that is commonly mistaken as an abnormality. These are most likely your papillae. However, if itchy, or even painful, perhaps the bumps may be something else. Your best bet would be to get an evaluation by a dentist if becomes symptomatic or if it is really concerning you. Good luck.

Prob not: The bump on your tongue is from trauma and not from oral sex. So yes you probably but it or traumatized it. Oral sex like herpes or other sexually transmitted diseases start as red painful vesicles that usually pop. If you are unsure, go see your dentist or physician but I would not worry.

Red bumps: It's possible that you may have a viral infection. You do not say how long you have had them or whether or not they are painful. Also, whether you have any physical symptoms such as fever, nausea, aches and pains. Or whether you are a smoker, use snuff, or alcohol. It's best to have them examined when they appear in your mouth.

Painful or not?: Is it painful? Have you ever had them before? Are there any other bumps elsewhere on your body or in your mouth? If it's painful, it could be a canker sore. If not, it could be an inflamed taste bud or a benign fibroma, possibly from past trauma to the tongue. I would recommend that you go to your doctor and have it looked at.

How do you feel?: If you feel fine and what you report are incidental findings, everything is probably normal or at least within normal boundaries. The pink bumps are papillae, most likely circumvallate papillae- Google it) and have slight redness on the back of your throat might indicate irritation, allergies, etc. And nothing to be overly concerned about. However, if you're not feeling well, see your physician.

Halitosis: Bad breath can be caused by many different factors, including sinus infections, periodontal problems, smoking, cavities, acid reflux, and your diet. Address all of these possibilities with your dentist and physician, and I'm confident that your problem will at least be minimized, and hopefully eradicated.
