Q.

Lump on my tongue

I have a lump on my tongue the size of a pea. Very painful. I first had it on the right side about 3 weeks ago and it disappeared. Now it is in the left side for the last 4 it 5 days. Should I be worried?

Often lumps on the tongue are caused by injury, infection or inflammation of taste buds etc. The cause needs to be diagnosed. See your dentist while the lump is still present.
