Sores in mouth
Random occurring mouth sores & lesions with no underlying medical conditions. Does anybody have similar symptoms..? I have chronic sores on tongue that my friend saw and was “horrified”

Yes, I agree with the response from blondeboss. Make an appt with an ENT. Tell them it's urgent, and explain the details. Ask them if they can get you in as soon as possible. Any "growth" in your mouth is a major concern. I had a growth on the base of my tongue, so I know. I saw my ENT FIRST, not a dentist.
Hi @taradl22, I moved your post to this existing discussion in the Ear, Nose & Throat (ENT) support group:
– Sores in mouth: https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/sores-in-mouth/
I did this so you can see the previous helpful posts by @jkyc56 @loribmt @jfn @oldkarl @datty190 and connect with them easily.
As @blondeboss and @suz22 suggested, you might consider making an appointment with an ENT specialist.
My orange tongue is back! Back to chlorahexadine on q-tip and scraping.
Have you asked your dentist about "magic mouthwash" for your bumps. I would see an oral surgeon after the dentist, if no ideas are put forth, that work. Have you done a saltwater rinse?
I've used Listerine for years and have never had a sore throat or mouth sores since I started using it 50 years ago. I used to have quite a few mouth sores and always seemed to get a sore throat. I would suggest using the original strong flavor. It works much better than the new flavored ones like the mint.
