I have a patch of papillae on the top of my tongue are enlarged and white.There are also some red dots. I can feel some soft bumps along the back of my tongue from left to right. It started 3 weeks ago. The white patch has grown larger since then. Is this typical of tongue cancer?
Here are the links to images
Also I noticed that the pockets to the left and right of the back of my tongue (I think they are called the epiglottic vallecula) feel bumpy. Is this normal or should they be smooth?
Thank you. I'm a little worried.
