My tongue is killing me

For about a week now there's been a bump on back of my tongue. I can see it but I can feel it. I can barley swallow,eat,or talk with wanting to yell in pain. When I tough it my full back area of tongue fills with pain. Its like sore yet hurts all the time. Please if you know anything about it let me know

Could be a Strep Throat infection, which is only can be cured by taking an antibiotic. It best to go and get a check up, could be something more serious than just a Strep Throat. The sooner to get diagnosis and get the right treatment is the better, in order to avoid further complication. But a Strep Throat usually accompanied by fever, swollen lymph nodes in the neck, trouble swallowing, red and swollen tonsil. If you don't have any of these symptom, than it's not it.
