Sore tongue, throat & ear on the left side
Hello,
I am asking this question for my husband and I tried to get as many details as possible. He has had a sore tongue for a couple of weeks now...it is only sore on the left side and there are no bumps or anything that we can see; it looks the same as the right side. He said it also hurts when he swallows, also only on the left side, and it hurts his throat and his ear. The pain has not gotten better or worse over time, it has just stayed the same.
Thank you in advance for your help!

I would advise a referral to an ENT physician.

Infection, inflammation or a mass can all lead to the symptoms you describe.  A thorough oral exam should be done to evaluate for any concerning lesions.

A laryngoscopy can evaluate the throat and tissues deeper down.  Imaging the neck with a CT scan can exclude masses.

If there are any suspicious lesions on the tongue, an oral surgeon can be considered, and I would stress an ENT evaluation.

Followup with your personal physician is essential.
