I am really concerned about this. Today i was looking at my tongue and i noticed a red patch to the left side of my tongue. You know that little bitty sort of hairy looking stuff on your tongue? Well on the patch on my tongue it looks like they have sort of rubbed off or something. I am really not sure what it is and when i showed it ot my mom she was very concerned and she kinda freaked me out even more. It's kind of a pretty big spot. I looked it up on the internet and It mentioned something called geographic Tongue. But from what i saw it looked like that is something associated with more than one patch, and i only have one. It doesnt hurt (though is kind of tender) and is flat (not bumpy) and it isnt bleeding or anything. Does anyone know anything about this? I am kind of scared.

Thank you so much for responding!
It does seem to have a bit of a white outline, but it isnt as clear to see (the outline) as the ones i saw on the internet. the spot looks really huge! Does that mean i will have patches like that for the rest of my life? Is there anything that can be done about it?
But, at least i am fairly certain that that's what it is and it isnt anything major. It could be a lot worse
I just relooked at it.. the outline isnt really raised, but it is kind of white around it.. i just dont know what else it could be... it did look like the pictures on the internet i saw, except the outline wasnt raised like that. And i have only one spot. Could that still be it?
