Not sure if this a symptom but i have headaches a lil
No problem. The one raised tongue colored bump I can see looks like what is called a fungiform papilla. It’s a harmless bump on the tongue that sometimes becomes a little more prominent then can decrease in size. It doesn’t appear to be anything unusual or dangerous. Anything else I can help with?

Headaches are unlikely connected with it.

I might just be adding symptoms because of nerves but what if throat kinda sore could that change your mind of what it could be?
No, not really. Fungiform papillae are normal isolated findings on the tongue. Is there something specific you are concerned that the painless bump on your tongue might be?

Herpes or sypillas not sure if i spelled that right ?

syphilis bump
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
Could those be a possibility due to the looks of picture i sent?
I see. Definitely not either of those. Herpes would look more like a raw ulcer or water blister and be VERY painful. Syphilis does not show up on the tongue and though it can cause painless ulcers, called chancres, it would not look like that. Definitely not either of those.

Was wodering how to cure it and how long they last?
Hello again. There’s no cure per se since it’s not really a disease process of condition. It will likely disappear over time, possibly weeks or months.

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.
