I just found a pin-sized black mole on my tongue while brushing my teeth. It's like one of my taste buds dark and round. I'm pretty sure it's a mole and not food or anything. It looks like any other mole you might find on your body. I thought it was strange that moles could grow on tongues?? So I am wondering if this could be cancer? I stupidly accidentally scratched it off with my toothbrush and now it's gone, so I can't go to the doctor and show him/her an empty red spot on my tongue. I am facing a dilemma on whether I should still see a doctor about this!
Are you sure? It's just ONE small unusual mole. I always thought if a mole shows up outta nowhere, it is something to be worried about. I have recently been out in the sun and got sunburned (and I am very light skinned), so I think there is a connection. I would like some other input please!
