Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Growing meat is called a tumor in its medical language. There are 2 types of tumors, namely benign and malignant tumors. While there are benign tumors that have no potential to become malignant and have potential. Now, when meat is grown on the tongue, it is called a tongue tumor. Benign tongue tumors can potentially become malignant.
One of the risk factors for tumor growth on the tongue is tongue injury, either from sharp teeth or from braces or sharp dentures. The sharp part causes the wound which will initially become canker sores. However, over time it can become a tumor. In addition to injury or injury factors, tongue tumors are also often experienced by smokers.
This cannot be ignored, you should consult with an oncology surgeon. The doctor will conduct further tests. If possible, undergo a biopsy if necessary.
Meanwhile, eat soft foods, avoid hard foods (such as crackers and nuts. Maintain oral hygiene. Stop smoking and drinking alcohol, if you have the habit.
Thus hopefully useful.
