Hi,

I think I have Enlarged Circumvallate Papillae ... it looks like it when I compare my tongue to photos on them web.

What could have caused this?
What can I do make it go away,(because it feels like there is something that I haven'  t swollowed properly and it really not a good feeling).

if this is something that has just started recently the cause needs to be determined- inflammation ,trauma etc.
however many people have enalrged papilla naturally.
see a dentist to determine whether there is any cause for concern in your case
