I apologize for sending another message but no one had posted anything today so I hope it's okay. I posted yesterday about the lump on my tongue. It's gotten worse, I've attached a link to a picture which I hope you can look at. It's magnified in a mirror and is not really that large. I have no insurance which is why I'm hesitant to go to the oral surgeon and really can't afford it. Should I wait a few more days to see if it heals?
I am sorry but a could not view the lesion on your tongue. I think you can wait a few days to see if it resolves itself but I think that you should get a diagnosis so if it occurs again you know what to expect.
Dr. if you get a chance please take a look at http://www.myspace.com/80388727 the pic is on there. The swelling seems to be going down so I guess that's a good sign, I've just never experienced anything like this before. I don't have health insurance or else I would have been to the dentist already.
