Dear customer, it is a pleasure to serve you again today, I want to tell you that looking at the image there does seem to be an irritative process around the tongue produced mostly by some kind of food or aggression by some chemical consumed, the recommendation is to use a common Colgate toothpaste and suspend the use of any additional mouthwash, also the use of a toothbrush with soft bristles should help, all this with the dietary recommendations that I provided above should improve satisfactorily.
No, dear, you do not have signs of oral candidiasis; it could be gingivostomatitis that, with the recommendations I provided above, should improve.
It's nothing serious, don't worry

Dear customer, as you will see on the internet there is a large amount of information that only increases the levels of stress, anxiety and worry of our patients, for this reason we have to individualise each particular clinical case and this is where medical judgement comes into play, and everything you have and tell me about is under no circumstances related to any type of cancer, with the recommendations I gave you in my first intervention the situation should improve after a few weeks, but you should still see your doctor.
Dear customer, it is a pleasure to serve you today, I want to tell you that you have nothing to worry about, I will gladly explain, the tongue has four main types of taste buds that are responsible for perceiving the taste, there are the filiform and fungiform papillae that are located in the center of the tongue, there are the foliated papillae which are those found on the posterior lateral edge of the tongue and finally there are the goblet papillae which are the large taste buds that are evident on the back of the tongue and are the ones that you point out in the image, each of these taste buds are responsible for perceiving salty, sweet, bitter, sour tastes, the goblet taste buds which are the large papillae that you show me in the image are responsible for perceiving the bitter taste of food so they are not any type of tumor or cancer development so you can be totally calm about it.
