lump under tongue that disappeared and is now back

I have a lump that started under my tongue a couple of weeks ago. After about 5 days it was red and sore when I tried to eat. Someone told me to suck on lemon slices (don't laugh). I tried this and the next day it was already alot smaller. After another day of sucking on lemon slices it was almost completely gone.  A week and a half later it has appreared again.  Sucking on the lemon slices again, and it is growing alot smaller. What in the world can this be? I have been under alot of stress. It is not like a canker sore where food juices make it burn, it only hurts if something hits it. I forgot to mention on the fifth day when it was at its worst, it had a clear bubble at the top.

It is possible that a salivary duct is blocked. I would see an oral surgeon for the definitive diagnosis.

ok i also had a lump appear under my tounge however it happened when i was sick so i thought maybe it had to do with the cold a swollen gland or something.  and it went away after a few days.  now it is back... it is right under the tip almost at the front of it on the underside.  it is irritated also, so always sore, but that may be because it is always scraping my teath because of where it is.  anyways i also had a spot "white" lack of pigment in a circle appear to the right of my right eye.  not sure if these coinside with each other.
