Hello there, fellows.

Yesterday I found a medium-sized purple-blue spot on my tongue, and it's still there after 24 hours.

It's painless; I don't feel a thing. But people usually don't have purple tongues, so I guess it might be something. I'll have to wait until Monday to see a doctor, so I'm kind of worried.

Does anyone here knows what could it be?

  • I have had the same for several months. It is somewhat numb. small pea-sized. is darker sometimes than others. actually sterilized a needle and tried to drain it thinking it was a blood blister, then it was white, then returned to dark color after a couple of days. i have no insurance so wandering if anyone got an answer- thinking maybe I should check it out but can't afford thousands of dollars for nothing. thanks.

  • I have had this spot of blue discoloration on the left side of my tongue for years and have yet to find a diagnosis for it. There has never been any pain or problem, juat want to know if it means anything.
