This is Dr. David
you really should see your dentist or a ENT doctor or oral surgeon about this bump.
it could be scar tissue or a granuloma which needs to be removed.
it doesn't sound like oral cancer, but that needs to be checked as well
a biopsy of the lump can tell for sure if it is a tongue based oral cancer.
but it sounds more likely to be a bit of scar tissue or granuloma which was formed when you bit your tongue before.
Thank you for your help, I did actually some time ago get a referal from my Dentist to have a Hospital examination, the consultant said that they would arrange a biopsy but I did not get any invite to have this done. Subsequently trhe lump reduced in size and so I let the matter rest. this was possibly twoyears ago?
usually oral cancers don't get smaller on their own.
scar tissue and benign cysts can get smaller on their own.
it sound more likely to be a benign scar tissue or cyst
but do follow up with a dentist or oral surgeon or ENT specialist.
good luck to you
