Hello and welcome to hcm,

Gum infections are common during pregnancy.
Such pregnancy gingivitis has to be treated by maintaining good oral hygiene.
Get your teeth cleaned.
Use chlorhexidine mouthrinse to gargle.
Rinse your mouth after every meals.
Get the pus within the lump drained thro- curettage.
Please do visit your dentist for further evaluation.
Use soft-bristled toothbrush to clean your teeth.
Hope this helps.

Thanks for asking the query,

There are many reasons because of which you develop bump on tongue few are;
-Accidental trauma due to biting or scalding.
-canker sores, ulcers.
-enlarged papillae if becomes inflammed.
-Medical comditions including diabetes, anaemia.
-Oral cancers which is associated with tobacco chewing and smoking.

So a detailed clinical evaluation by your Dentist is needed to confirm the cause and plan appropriate treatment. I would encourage you to get a checkup done by Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon.

Meantime you maintain a good oral hygiene, clean your slowly tongue with a tongue scraper or soft bristle toothbrush, use antiseptic mouthwash gargles twice daily.

Hope this helps out.

Thanks for writing in.
I read your problem,there could be following possibilities-

1.Traumatic bite,because of incorrect filling/sharp teeth edges etc.......
2. apthous ulcer.
3. inflammed papilla etc.........

But as you said,it is not painful.
It is painful only at the time when you have sinusitis.

I would like to suggest you please visit an oral surgeon as soon as possible and get the thorough examination done and take a proper treatment accordingly.
Nothing to get worried.
Take Care

Hello dear
This lump is not related to your sinusitis or allergies.It can be due to persistant trauma from your sharp tooth or it can be a papilloma (A benign growth). So it is better to consult an oral surgeon .Dont wait a long.
