Customer Question

I started getting a lump in my tongue last night. The outside over the tongue was whitish. This morning, it seems a bit smaller and most of the whiteness has gone but the lump remains. It is about the size of a small marbled but not round.
JA: How long have you had the lump? Is it hard or soft?
Customer: Since yesterday and seems soft
JA: Is there anything else the Doctor should be aware of?
Customer: I take vitamins and an aspirin every other day. I started taking 10 mm of Lipitor two weeks ago. Additionally, it seems to have started after dinner last night.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Doctor about your situation and then connect you two.
