Air bubble in the tongue



i have a bump in my tongue not on it but actually inside it and just by looking you wouldn`t know it was there. it is located on the left side toward the front about 2-3 centimeters from the tip it feels like an air bubble in my tongue?


It would be difficult to say what this is without doing an examination. Your description is most suggestive of a cyst, a dilated (swollen) blood vessel (such as a varicose vein), or a benign tumor. Ideally you should be evaluated by an oral pathologist.
