Hi, thanks for the great pics!! What is on the tongue is just a fibroma which is almost always benign and not life threatening.

What I suggest you do is call your dentist and have it removed and biopsied to ensure that it is in fact benign. This is very easy painless procedure and if your dentist does not want to remove it he will refer you to an Oral Surgeon who does. It is a very uncomplicated removal so there is no reason to worry. This is not an emergency at all but be sure not to forget about having it removed. OK???

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
