I have a white skin tag on tongue, What is it and should I be worried ?

I have a white skin tag-like thing on the top of my tongue. It s been there for a while now and mostly goes unnoticed, but I was just brushing my teeth and noticed it looks a little bigger than it used to... It doesn t hurt (as I said it mostly goes unnoticed), but after brushing my tongue it did hurt a little when I moved it gently with my teeth... What is it and should I be worried?!?

Welcome To HealthcareMagicforum,
It seems to be either a cyst or a wart.You should show to a dental surgeon and get it removed.

The condition could be a wart or a fibroma on your tongue.In any case since it interferes in the functional activity it is best advised to get it removed surgically.You may see a good dental surgeon for the same.
