I've been worried for a few days now...

I'm quite worried about a bunch of bumps I have on my tongue. So far I've read that Papillae on the back of the tongue tend to be larger. I had my brother take out his tongue and his had them too, but half the size.

Could it be this? http://www.library.vcu.edu/cfapps/tml/oralpathology/browse_oral.cfm?type=soft&display=long&startrow=24

What does this look like to you? Something to worry about? Something to visit a doctor for?


Please, in doubt, try and help me out. I either need to stop worrying or have it checked out by a doctor soon.

Many thanks in advance,
