I've had these leukoplakia-like little bumps across my tongue for a few years, a whitish bad tasting film that is pasty. I have to try to brush the film off gently with my toothbrush and toothpaste.

My child’s tongue becomes black, worried if this is leukoplakia.

There was this small thing like a piece of thorn or small flesh on my tongue. I kept playing with it with my upper teeth. I tried showing it to a friend and she tried to pull it out. Since then it has grown. It does not hurt but it grows when I eat salt and has this look like sore on it, I want to know if this can cause cancer.

I have a problem with my tongue, like hypersalivation and drooling with leukoplakia.

There was this small white thing like a piece of small thorn or flesh on my tongue since a long time, but it looks like it has grown more. I wonder if it is leukoplakia.
