Lump On The Lower Tip Of The Tongue, White And Slightly Hard?
HealthReplies.com, I want to ask. R n My child is 3 years 8 months old, female. I just saw this afternoon that there was a lump on the bottom of his tongue that was growing, white and a bit hard. At first I thought it was thrush, but when I asked whether it was sick or not, he said it didn’t hurt and I also didn’t know when it appeared. Is it dangerous and what steps should i do next.
Some of the conditions that can cause complaints to your child include:
Mucocele, blockage of the salivary gland that causes lumps to form. Infection by viruses, bacteria etc.Tumors, can be benign or malignant
It is necessary to do a direct examination by a doctor to determine the cause of your child's complaint. The doctor will perform several examinations including additional examinations if necessary. Treatment will adjust to the underlying cause, in the form of administering drugs to surgery
Here's what you can do about your child's complaints:
Maintain the cleanliness of the mouth and its surroundings. Avoid squeezing lumps. Get enough rest and consume nutritious foods
If the complaints that your child feels are increasingly worrying, it is better to consult a doctor immediately in order to get the right treatment
