Clumps Under The Tongue?
Good evening, recently I felt something was lumping under my tongue, after I saw there was a small white blob rather red, if touch does not hurt, what are the symptoms / illnesses? What medication is needed?
Hello Natasya, thank you for the question.
Lumps under the tongue can occur due to a dangerous or harmless process that can heal itself. This lump will feel like a lump, can be with or without pain. Some causes of lumps under the tongue include:
Ranula, which is a fluid-filled sac due to obstruction of the salivary glands, can be small to large in size, located at the bottom of the mouth, and generally painless. Mucocele, which is a fluid-filled sac that is non-malignant, located in the salivary glands in the oral cavity, on the lips, under the tongue, palate, inner cheeks, and others. Salivary gland malignancies Cancer of the tongue and so on. Ranula and mucocele are generally harmless and can heal on their own, but in some cases can be permanent and require special treatment. Therefore, if the lump is felt to be getting bigger, progressive, or accompanied by symptoms of inflammation such as pain, redness, difficulty opening the mouth, difficulty swallowing, etc. you should immediately consult a doctor. The doctor will conduct question and answer, physical examination, and some supporting examinations if needed. Handling will be adjusted to the underlying conditions, such as the use of drugs, injection of drugs into the lesion, to surgical procedures. To reduce complaints and prevent complaints from reappearing, we recommend:
Always maintain oral hygiene Brushing teeth regularly, at least 2 times a day, after eating and before sleeping at least 2 L per day. Eat healthy and nutritious food Adequate rest If complaints do not decrease or worsen, you should immediately consult a doctor.
Thus, hopefully it helps.
