White skin tab under tongue floor of tongue - what is this?

White Skin Tab under tongue floor of tongue - what is this I was brushing my teeth and I noticed under my tongue on the floor of my mouth what looked like a white skin tab - i guess u would call it. I started going on line and looking this up and found all these things about tongue cancer and I am making myself nervous and crazy. I also started taking antibiotics last Thursday because I had a route canal done on Monday. Can you please tell me what you think it is - I am very nervous. Thanks in advance for your help.

the white skin tab need not be cancer .You noticed it recently secondly there is no severe pain.It can be a oral thrush (infection )which occur due to some infection or some times with even antibiotic .I think there is no need to worry.Cancer is when you have any prolonged ;painful ;affection which is not going by any treatment.Don't worry you can apply borax glycerine also take some multivitamins & it should settle .If you are still worried consult your dentist he will guide you .
