Hello, for me to give you a better answer, is it possible for you to upload a photo of that area here? You can either attach the photo directly with your reply or use an external photo sharing site like www.imgur.com and copy the URL of the images in your reply.

Well, sorry doc, I dont think it is possible to take a pic at that place
Expert:  Dr. Behere replied 1 year ago.

No problem, but the nature of your question is such that giving you an answer without a photo would be just shooting in the dark.

I will therefore opt out, and open your question up to other experts.

U see, I can feel there are three tiny balls near the end of Frenulum of tongue, and I believe they have been there for quite some years because I have a habit of licking them when Im nervous, for a long time I just thought there are some ducts so I didnt pay too much attention on them and they just seem to stay there quietly but today I just did some search online and have no idea what they really are....I thought they are Submandibular ducts but there should only be two on each side of the frenulum but I have the third tiny ball sitting above them....all three balls are connected together

They are noreally benign, not to worry.

They are normally benign, and serve no purpose.
Expert:  LadyDMD replied 1 year ago.
No everyone has them, but not to worry.
Expert:  LadyDMD replied 1 year ago.
Any other conditions, color or a change?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
ok...i just find out that when i raise my tongue, the three balls also rise and they are at the center of my frenulum and become a kinda lump shape thing on the frenulum
