    I've noticed 2, small bumps under my tongue, on the base of the frenulum linguae; I've also experienced a slight, stretching sensation in that area whenever I yawn. Obviously, I'll have it checked out by the dentist. But a quick diagnosis on the internet would seem to suggest that I might have some kind of oral cancer :confused:

    Is it serious?

    Thanks in advance.

    Yeah I diagnosed myself with skin cancer recently, over a bite that has now gone! Don't worry yourself. How long have they been there? They might just be ulcer type things, from rubbing etc. Obviously if you are worried it's best to check it out, but I'm sure it's not serious.

    Also, I am impressed with your fancy tongue words

    Thanks for the reply. I've had them since yesterday, and my GP said it's not something I should be particularly worried about.

    Hehe. I had to look up the anatomy diagram to see what it's called. It's funny how the biology people use complicated terms for everything. In physics, if it looks like a black-hole, we just call it a black-hole

    Ha yeah much more simple!
    I reckon if you give it a few ore days, it should just go away on its own

    How long has it been there? No need to jump to oral cancer, could be a benign ulcer - generally only ulcers/swellings that don't subside after several weeks are biopsied for any sign of malignancy
