receiving oral sex is about a 1 in 10,000 chance of contracting HIV if your partner is infected.
Thanks. I've got a white spot on the underside of my tongue. what could that be? is it an std?
it has been there for 2 years now....
no, that is not an STD.
most likely normal if it has been there for 2 years.
do you smoke or use oral tobacco?
no i don't smoke or use tobacco.
i get tonsilitis quite often. is the white spot related to this?
also, i have a few bumps on the back of my tongue...
is this related to the white spot / bump?
the white spot is directly on the underside of the tongue.
I don't think the white bump is related to your tonsilitis.
that is in a different part of your mouth.
I think it is a normal white spot for you.
have you shown it to your doctors?
I can't see it.
no i haven't shown it to a doctor. what about the bumps at the back of the tongue?
i get quite a few soar throats
what could it be?
could be from acid reflux.
acid reflux is common to cause sore throat
there are normal taste buds in the back of the throat.
which can look like bumps on the tongue and back of the throat.
oh, i didn't realize that
i was wooried that the white bump / spot could be cancerous or an std!!
was really worried about it lately
a friend of mine lost his wife to cancer (she was 36) last year
don't let your anxiety get out of control.
so i've been worried about these bumps etc
show the white spot to your doctor
I bet it will be fine.
should i show it to a doctor or my denist?
either one is fine
also, sometimes the white bump / spot gets inflamed...
- gets larger
from time to time.
should i be worried?
or is it a natural occurance?
it sounds like a natural occurrence
but show it to your doctor or dentist.
i have an appointment with a dentist i a week or so
i'll show it to him
I'm sure you will do fine
