Question clear bubble under my tongue?

Hi! I get this on and off, and have no idea what it is or why I get it. Every once in a while, I will get a small, hard, clear bubble on the underside of my tongue. I usually just pop it with a needle (gross, I know, sorry), and it goes away. It's not pusy or anything like that, just very strange. I asked my dentist what it is, and he didn't have a clue. It's always just one, and it always seems to be in the same spot. Anyone else ever get these, or know what they are?

Yes! I have gotten those too. Seems when there is something small wrong, doctors have no clue. It's nothing to worry about, they just go away. It's one of those things that just happen for no reason

Whew - glad to hear that I'm not the only one who has ever had this. Everyone else who I've mentioned it to has never seen or heard of anything like that before. Yes, it does go away after a day or so. I guess I'm just more curious about it than anything. Take care!

I get those weird. Do you guys ever cough like a little ball of something from your tonsil/throat area? I do, and I think thats weird too.

You guys rock

I just came on the message boards looking for an answer to this

I was chewing gum for about an hour and when I went to spit it out I noticed a weird bump under my tongue

When I stuck my tongue out in the mirror I noticed it was clear and slightly hard.

I was getting kind of nervous even though it will probably go away in a day or so


And coughing up hard stuff, yes it happens to me sometime. It's buildup from your tonsil area and it's perfectly normal

Re: clear bubble under my tongue?

Yep. I get those little bubbles too, and also on the inside of my cheek(s). They are basically blisters. Usually, when I pop them, with my teeth or a needle, they come back right away, so the hole I poke in them has to be big enough to not close back up again and fill back up with fluid. The clear fluid is salty (icky) but probably not any type of infection, as it is clear rather than a whitish color.

They are annoying, but luckily don't happen too often and are pretty harmless.
