Hello and hope you are doing well.

The ‘bumps’ that you feel could be enlarged circumvallate papillae. These are present at the back of the tongue and it is normal. Other causes for the bumps could be due to canker sores, these are painful. Others are due to warts, Kawasaki disease and leukoplakia. But there is usually some amount of inflammation with these conditions. If the bumps become painful or if there is discoloration or if they increase in size consult your doctor for an evaluation.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
