About 2 weeks ago I noticed a slightly sore bump on my tongue. I thought it was an enflamed taste bud since I get them fairly often due to the fact I eat alot of spicy food. The bump did not go away but stopped hurting. It is now hard and almost wart-like in consistency. It has an almost perfectly uniform hole in the middle and it is almost perfectly round. It has gotten a liittle bigger but not much @ this point. What is it and should I be worried.

  • It looks like intially you had some inflammed taste bud or it can be some traumatic injury which got fibrosed and turned into hard swelling. You have to go to the dentist as it is already over 2 weeks and if it does not subside itself then may be it has to be excised.
