Patient : For the last few days I've noticed that I can feel something in the back of my mouth. I thought it was just food that needed to be rinsed out or something. So, finally I reached my finger into my mouth to see what it was. Come to find out there are several tiny bumps on the back of my tongue. I immediately began to panic because I'm not sure if it is an infection, an STI, or whatever. The bumps don't hurt and they are not sore. They're very tiny and if I never would've done the finger check, I wouldn't even notice that they are there. It only scares me because I have no clue what they may be. Please help. -Princess
