What causes lump on tongue?

How is it going? This morning i woke up with a medium size lump that is inside my tongue. It does not protrude very much but when i feel it with two fingers it feels medium size. I have not seen or felt this before this morning. Do you have any idea what it could be?

Thanks for consulting HCM,

Read your query as you have lump on tongue this can be soft growth fibroma or due to sharp cusp or ulceration .
Dont be worried so much I will suggest you to consult your oral surgeon for examination of tongue and if needed you can go for investigations like biopsy .

Hope this will help you.
