    Bitter Taste in Mouth

    I’m a 51-year old man, in excellent health, take no medications, and feel great; except that in June of 2016 (approximately six months ago) I cracked a molar while biting down on a rock-like baked seed in a bagel, which hurt like hell, but I ignored it and the pain diminished, and half of the molar fell off (down to the exposed root) a few weeks later. I don’t believe it ever got infected: I never had any symptoms of an infection. Since I cracked the molar, I’ve been brushing the cracked molar very....

    What is wrong with my tonsil and lymph nodes?

    Hello everyone, I'm new here and I was hoping you guys could give me some suggestions about a problem I'm having? I've been to the doctors about one of my tonsils and some lymph nodes being enlarged on side of face and he's put me on antibiotics but I'm still really concerned. Around 5 months ago I noticed my right tonsil had become larger than the other and had a yellow spot on it; it didn't cause any pain so I didn't deal with it. A month ago it started becoming irritating....

    Small invisible lump inside cheek mucosa

    I feel a small lump inside the lower cheek mucosa. It is less than 1cm (I discovered it a year ago), it is not visible inside the mouth, it does not grow and it does not cause pain. Near the lump I feel a duct/vein. What could it be ? Should I worry about it ? The mucosa looks normal. I was thinking that it might a benign cyst or a blocked salivary duct but I am afraid of things such as oral cancer. I am 18 yo.

    Stitches inside bottom lip

    I bit through my lip and received 2 stitches on the outside and 3 on the inside. 2 of the 3 internal stitches (white colored) have fallen out on their own and I went to the doctor and he removed the external stitches (blue thread color). I have one remaining stitch inside my lip that has yet to come loose and it is now THREE weeks since receiving the stitches. Should I be worried, should I have a Dr. remove it? I thought mouth stitches were dissolvable and fell out within 2 weeks. Will it take longer....

    odd flap of skin on the right side of the underside of tongue

    About three-four days ago I had very small painful bump on the underside of my tongue. I've had this a few times before, it usually goes away on its own. Two days ago it has grown larger, it is relatively thin but it seems it has extended sort of, Id say its around 4-5mm in length. I've draw a picture, its not the best but I think it'll show it a bit better I'm not sure how to get rid of it, it is painful when I eat or move my tongue around a lot....
