Could you please post a picture of that for me here?

Hi I have this sore on my tongue, I’ve never had it before! It doesn’t hurt and isn’t itchy but is sore when I brush my tongue with my tooth brush and makes it bleed

Got them--hold on please

Not any kind of cancer there

That's an hypertrophied papilla--taste bud

Usually it's from gastric acid reflux but nothing serious at all

I suggest you take either prilosec or prevacid daily for a week to clear this up

Please let me know if you need any more information

Thank you very much! This doesn’t look like herpes does it?
