There is a painless lump under my tongue at the juncture where the tongue meets the floor in the center, on that membrane bottom. I can't even find an anatomical name for the spot, but am concerned. Red, swollen, not painful.
How long have you noticed this lump?
A lump in the floor of the mouth could be a result of an infection.
A trial of antibiotic may be needed to see if that lump would resolve.
If it does not resolve with treatment or if it progresses, the next step would be to have it biopsied.
It would be best to consult your ENT specialist for evaluation and management.
