View Full Version : Tongue sores OUCH!

06-09-2011, 07:53 AM
I've been looking through the threads but haven't really found my answer. I have two painfull tongue sores, they are red with a white middle, I wanted to post a picture but can't figure out how. Anyway should I call my Rheumy, or is there anything I can do to help with the pain, actually its more a like a burn and for some reason I am really nauseous. I wish I could go home, but its too hot 100 degrees here in Philly and we don't have central air : (

I had a huge sore on my tongue and I saw my GP. She was positive that it was cancer, and put me on antibiotics while waiting for an oral surgeon appointment. The sore went away in a week, therefore no cancer.

It was so painful, I couldn't eat anything or even talk. It was a horrible week. Try to get a doctor to see you as soon as possible because it can be fixed up quickly. The first picture of this web site is similar to what my tongue sore looked like, but a bit different. Mine was very hard and very sore. http://www.carolineacton.com.au/Head&NeckCancer.cfm
