Lumps in Tongue

Do you have a lump or lumps in your tongue? You aren’t alone. Message boards and google searches are overwhelmed with questions about lumps in and on the tongue.

What are lumps in the tongue?

Often people worry most about the lumps in their tongues being cancerous. Though this is a concern, oral cancer is rare. More frequently lumps in the tongue are the result of inflamed taste buds, trauma to the tongue (like biting it by accident), or salivary glands that have some how been stopped up.

So relax. You probably aren’t dying. Just go have your tongue looked at by a dentist or doctor to be sure.

There is also a difference between lumps on the tongue and lumps in the tongue. Lumps on the tongue are generally canker sores, tongue lesions, or the result of infection. For more on that, take a look at the “lumps on tongue” article.

What is the best way to get rid of lumps in the tongue?

Depending on the lump in your tongue, you may have to do anything from waiting for it to heal to having it surgically removed. Doctors have recommended waiting ten days before making an appointment for a lumpy tongue because tongue problems often go away on their own, but if the problem does not heal in more than fourteen days then it should be looked at.

Sometimes tongues start acting up because they aren’t being cleaned properly.

How do you clean your tongue?

One of the best ways to clean an unhappy and painful tongue is an Orabrush. The Orabrush removes bacteria, left over food residue, and bad-breath causing gunk from the surface of your tongue. When all that bad stuff is gone, your tongue doesn’t have to work so hard and you can avoid the problems that come with a dirty tongue.

Simply place the soft bristled head of the Orabrush against the back of your tongue and pull forward. You will quickly see the difference the Orabrush makes for your newly happy tongue.

Orabrush and Tongue Foam—The world's best bad breath system.

Better Than a Toothbrush!

Ultra-soft, pointed bristles reach deep into the uneven crevices of your tongue and loosen stinky bacteria. These bristles are designed after the surgeon's scrub brush, the same brush they use to clean bacteria from their hands before they cut you open. (Toothbrush bristles, however, are designed for the smooth surfaces of your teeth, not your tongue.) The scraper then collects and removes the bacteria and residue generated from brushing, helping cure bad breath.

    "[Dr. Bob] knew that toothbrushes, made for hard surfaces, would not work as well on tongues. He had researched ways to clean salmonella off raw chicken and learned it took flexible bristles to pry the bacteria from soft folds. Based on that, he hatched the idea for the Orabrush. It has soft, rubbery bristles for scraping across the tongue, back to front."
