lump on toddler's tongue

My grandson had a lump on his tongue, was a little raised. The Dr.s said they would watch it. It is on the top of his tongue. Now it has grown over a month to about the size a little smaller than a match head. It looks red, is raised and white dots on it. Who is the best to look at it and if needed removal a oral surgeon or ENT. Does it have to be pediatric. Having a hard time finding one with their insurance

Every mass, lesion or lump found in any infant should have a diagnosis.  Simply watching it is unacceptable.  The "lumps" of the tongue are commonly treated by Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons and ENT surgeons.  I suggest you take the earliest appointment offered to you by either specialist.
