Hello again,I was waiting for your reply.
I think you had difficulty in replying.
I am sending an answer.I am sorry for your symptoms.Tongue can have swelling due to a few causes.It can be from an allergy.However, allergy symptoms would not last so long.It can be bigger in hormonal disorders like acromegaly, hypothyroidism.Diabetes can also cause it.Infiltrative conditions like sacrcoidosis, amyloidosis can increase the size of tongue.Inflammation or infection can cause an increase but those are associated with pain & is an acute conditions.Growth or tumor, malformation of blood vessels or hemangioma can cause it.Sometimes, no cause can be found too.I would suggest to discuss those possibilities with your doctor.He can then decide whether to take any test.As it is continuing for years, there is unlikely any serious issue like cancer.I hope this information helps.If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.Wish you good health. Please rate my answer excellent if you are satisfied with it.Regards.
