Hi....I have a small pea sized lump under my tongue on the right side. It's located in the valley of my mouth between the floor of the tongue and the gum line. It is below the tissue. It is painless and has there for 2 years or so. It has not gotten larger. I asked my dentist about it a year and a half ago...but she said it was likely nothing. Is this something I should be more concerned about? Does anyone know what this could be? I have a doctor's appointment next week for something unrelated....should I talk to my GP about this?
thank you so much for your reply. I will definitely discuss it with my doctor. I just pressed the lump with my finger (I've never done that before)...and I notice that I can flatten it by pressing on it. i hope that is a good sign! thanks again.
