Brief Answer:
Aphthous ULCERS

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Welcome to Healthcare Magic and thanks for putting up the query.
You have an Aphthous ulcer on the tip of the tongue. The other elevations at the back of the tongue are tongue papillae which is absolutely normal. There is nothing that suggests a cancer.
You should apply candid mouth paint and take tablet vitamin c once daily.
please let me know if you have any indigestion or constipation?
Any history of tobacco use or smoking?
All the medicines I have prescribed will be available only on prescription.
Avoid spicy food and aerated drinks. Drink plenty of water
Any further questions are always welcome.
Follow up with the required information.
Take care
Thanks and regards
