Hi guys just wanted some advice really a few weeks ago I noticed a tiny lump on the side of my tongue I thought it was an ulcer but not painful.. It's still there and the last few days right where the lump is my tongue has become indented/puckered 😕 I'll add a photo to this post any advice would be great as I don't want to go to docs if something silly..

I would ask your GP or dentist to check it out. Any ulcer or lump in mouth that does not disappear needs to be looked at. Personally I would go to dentist rather than GP. There will be walk in clinics in your area if you are not registered x

I'd go to your GP or dentist, just to check.

As a fellow worrier I understand. I am not a clinician at all so i can't give any advice on your photos but I do work in dental health. The standard advice is that any lump, ulcer or patch that hasn't healed within two weeks should be checked out just to make sure xx
