I am paying you again because I know I have asked a lot of questions. Thanks

It really looks like you could have traumatized it by biting it. It does not look serious.

Ok thanks again.

that spot on my upper lip is much better. I just noticed a white area on the tip of the tongue on the same side. Anything worrisome? What is it? Thanks.

I would need to see a picture of the area to give you any specifics.

Should I pay you again? I guess it is different question

No ,not necessary. That appears to be part of a rash that occurs sometimes on the tongue called geographic rash of the tongue or wandering rash of the tongue. It is not pathological,needs no treatment and we have yet to find a cause for it. It is nothing to worry about and will fade away on its own.

Could it be from a burn. I feel like I may have noticed it after drinking some hot liquid or does a burn of the tongue not look like that. Thanks!

It could be. It does not look like anything that you should worry about. It will be gone within the week.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

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!!
