    Back of tongue is raised and painful

    Hi everyone,

    I've just got back from the doctors, I've been experiencing mouth pain on the left hand side on the back of my tongue for around 2 weeks.

    The gp (who isn't my normal gp) just glanced at my tongue and didn't even look at the bit I was telling him to just said I need to gargle salt water, which is what I have been doing for a week but hasn't helped an ounce.

    It's painful to eat and swallow and to me, looks a bit suspicious.

    I'm worried about this as I'm a smoker, 30 years of age and usually in good health.

    Has anyone experienced this before?

    Request to be sent to an ENT who does biopsies.
    It's all a matter of perspective!
