I've been smoking for only a few years, and yes I am quitting right now.
A few days ago, I noticed a lump, about 1/2 an inch long, inside the left portion of my tongue.
It does not hurt, there is no discoloration, swelling, numbness or anything of the sort.
Other than the fact it is a lump, there is no indication that it could be cancer.
I've checked web sites extensively, and have found no mention of having any lumps inside the tongue, but on top of the tongue.
However, I am scared out of my mind, and my doctor's appointment is a few days away.
