My 7 year old daughter has a painless bump on side of her tongue towards the front for past several weeks. Same colour as her tongue, just a big bigger than a pin head. she went to dentist for regular check up and was told wasn't sure what it was, could be swollen tastebud. what could it be and should we be concerned?

thanks for your query, i have gone through your query. the bump on the tongue could be because of chronic irritation by the teeth resulting in traumatic fibroma. consult a oral physician and get it examined and remove the cause like rounding off the sharp cuspal edges. and get the growth removed. i hope my answer will help you. take care.
