Q.

red circular spot on tongue

My tongue has been sensitive a few days but i thought i bit it or something but i just looked in the mirror and was surprised to see a red area about the size of my pinky nail on the left side near the tip of my tongue, it also has a light white line around the one side of the circular patch. Should i worry about this? I really dont want to waste time with a doctor''s visit for a sensitive tongue unless it can be serious. Any ideas of what it can be?
