Growth on underside of tongue in 5 year old boy.
what is a mass on underside of tongue of a child?
Hello Ms. Ruppert, and welcome to Ask a Doctor. I have read your query and here is my advice.
-thyroglossal duct cyst
-ectopic thyroid gland
-ranula, which a translucent, bluish cyst
None of these is cancerous, but this mass ought to be evaluated by a pediatric ENT
Should you have additional questions, I will be happy to help.
