I have a few sores on my tongue and inside

I have a few sores on my tongue and inside my mouth. They aren't very visible but I certainly feel them. It seems they have been there for 2 months now. Should I be worried about oral cancer. I smoked for 30 years but quit over a year ago. I am 53yrs old.

Hi, For the past week I have had a sore tongue. The first day it was really read down the centre...the first day it looked like it was bleeding slightly, now it looks more pinkish down the centre and feels better, but I have yellowish long patches down each side. Also, the under sides of my tongue are very sore. This past week I have had a really sore mouth, both insides of cheeks and below my lip... Also, itchy ears...also, I have had these symptoms several times throughout my life and have never gotten a reason for it. Is this a viral or fungal infection? Any advice would be appreciated?

I have a lump inside my tongue that started as a mild soreness last night and now is taking up about a quarter of my tongue. It s not visible but my tongue feels swollen and has a hard lump inside on the right side. I had severe tonsilitis a few weeks ago and have had a sore throat ever since, but no tongue problems before this.

I barely noticed this lump inside my tongue last night. When I try to look at it in the mirror I can t see it but I can feel it with teeth. Its painful when I play around with it but even just moving my tongue around, I feel a slight soreness. This just came out of nowhere and it has not gone away yet this afternoon. Please help me identify what this could be. Thank you.
