A Lump On The Tongue That Cannot Be Pulled Out?

Hi, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com
On the tongue there are small nodules called papillae. Everyone will have a tongue papilla, which is a receptor for taste nerves. The bumps on the tongue other than the papillae of the tongue, can be a sign of an illness, including:
1. Ranula, which is a cyst arising from blocked saliva.
2. Sialolithiasis, the stone in the salivary glands.
3. Tumor of the tongue.
Lumps on the tongue, will cause someone to feel there is a lump in the oral cavity. In addition, around the lump there can be wounds or blushing. Often the lumps are also painful so it is difficult when chewing food.
You should consult a dentist. The doctor will do a physical examination directly on your lump and will request the necessary investigations, such as a fine needle biopsy. Treatment is based on the cause of the disease. Sometimes surgery is needed to overcome it.
Meanwhile, you must maintain oral hygiene and multiply consume water.
Thus hopefully useful.
