Purple spot under tongue
I seen a doctor for a check up and I told him I was going to see a dentist and he told me That I mightr want to mention to the dentist that I had a purple spot under my tongue what does that mean she acted very concerned
Most "purple spots" under the tongue represent varices (also known as varicose veins). These are common and harmless. You should see your dentist so that he or she can confirm this, however.
