I have a small white stone like lump under the tongue. The lump is under the skin of the tongue and can be moved around. I have had dry mouth for about two weeks and possible swollen lymph nodes. I have been taking solodyn pills for my acne recently.

  • It can be due to obstructed salivary gland which is present under the tongue. It is sub lingual salivary gland which is present at this location. Sometimes because of  some obstruction this gland is blocked causing the lump. As you have dry mouth also, this also indicates less of salivary flow which again can be due to salivary gland obstruction. Without clinical exam it is difficult to give definite diagonosis. You have to visit a dentist who after clinical examination will find out the reason and do treatment. Treatment options varies from surgical removal to meds.
