Hi. I've been reading over all of these because I have found the same pea sized (maybe a little bigger) inside my tongue as well. When I first noticed it a few days ago, it was painful. Now it is only painful when I put pressure on it. Also, I have had a sore throat for over a month. When I went to the hospital for it (twice), the doctor told me it was chronic sinus infection and I did two rounds of powerful antibiotics, which seemed to help for a day or so after I finished, and then would come back.
I used to be a smoker, but quit over a year ago with the exception of Electronic Cigarettes. When I did smoke tobacco, it was 1/2 a pack to a pack a day. I am unemployed with no income and am a college student, but I do have a plethora of medical problems. I have PKD (Polycystic kidney disease), Hypertension as a result, arthritis in my back, deteriorating discs in my back, and a arachnoid cyst on the left temporal part of my brain. I've had my appendix removed two years ago and an abcess removed from my throat a year ago.
Needless to say, I'm concerned. When I talk to my family about this, they seem nonchallant about it. I really dont know what to do.. I realize that I need to go to the doctor, but I dont even have a GP. Is this lump something I should worry about?
