Small growth under tongue


I have a small growth under my tongue it is about the middle of the lingual frenulum and is just like an extra piece of skin.  It's almost like its a skin tag but I'm not sure if you can get those in your mouth.  I have had this for about a month now and it doesn't seem to be getting any smaller. Do you have any idea what this could be?

Thanks for your time

Did you ever find out what this was? I have two of them I've noticed recently and one of them has pain. Please email searcherrr at yahoo dot com if you found out what it was. I'd really really appreciate it.

you should see your dentist.  there are salivary glands under the tongue.  they can become painful and have stones, or other issues.  there can be no other way to diagnose than an oral exam at a dental office.

I had something like a skin tag under my tongue. My tongue was sore. I used Listerine mouthwash daily and wash mouth with salt and lukewarm water. After 4 days it healed up. I'm good. No doctor.
