    How to treat cancer sores under tongue?

Hello , I have recently been having pain under my tongue, I first realized it hurt to move my tongue around and then saw some cankor sores on my tongue, I was just wondering if it could be because I bit my tongue more than once in one day pretty hard or is it something more serious?

I have gone through your query and can understand your concerns..

As per your complain and presentation of symptoms CANKER SORES or APTHOUS ULCERS are painful ulcers and can occur due to a number of reasons and physical injury caused by tongue bite is a common cause..

Nothing to worry you can apply a numbing gel containing Lignocaine over the sores or gargle with a numbing mouthwash for pain relief..
Take anti-inflammatory painkiller IBUPROFEN..
Soda bicarb gargle will help..
Avoid hot, hard and spicy food..
Take a soft diet..

Hope this information helps..
