Tongue Diseases


Last Updated August 23rd, 2019

Tongue cancer is one of the most prevalent forms of oral cancer. It is invariably linked to tobacco consumption. The most evident symptom of tongue cancer is an ulcer on the tongue that bleeds a lot and doesn’t show signs of healing. People also experience pain and swelling in the tongue and formation of white patches.
Though smoking is probably the number 1 cause of tongue diseases, you can still get tongue infections even if you don’t smoke. The other causes of frequent tongue infections are - spicy foods, stress, nutritional deficiency, yeast infections, and lack of oral hygiene.
The human tongue can surprisingly reveal a ton of information about the body. For example, redness in the tongue indicates nutritional deficiency (folic or iron), canker sores imply there is herpes infection, blackish or hairy tongue could mean diabetes, and white scaly appearance mostly means an autoimmune disorder.
Maintaining proper oral hygiene can help prevent a number of oral diseases including tongue diseases. One must brush twice a day to remove food particles, debris, plaque, and microbes collecting in the mouth. In addition to this, flossing helps remove the germs and debris that get collected in between the teeth.

Overview of tongue diseases

Oral health is a matter of crucial importance in our daily lives. These may encompass teeth, gum and tongue infections. Infections of the tongue may be of severe types and may even give rise to chronic tongue diseases. In due course of time, it may even lead to oral cancer. The statistics of the World Health Organisation show that nearly 300,000 new cases of oral cancer are reported each year all over the world.

 

What are tongue diseases?

Tongue diseases are a group of infections that occur in the tongue and may give rise to oral cancer in due course of time. Tongue diseases may be congenital or acquired.

The patients may have plaque, tongue inflammation or blisters on their tongues. These conditions often arise from dental problems or the use of protruding dentures.

Many times, irregular white patches form on the mucosal linings, accompanied by pain, inflammation, and tenderness.

Fluid-filled blisters may form when the condition becomes very critical. Tongue diseases also include structural defects of the tongue which may be present from the birth.

 

What are the causes of tongue diseases?

Tongue diseases may result from a wide range of causes. The common conditions are listed below-

  • Congenital defects
  • Excess tobacco or alcohol consumption
  • Presence of certain chemicals in the toothpaste and mouthwashes
  • Medication overdose
  • Ultraviolet radiation
  • Epithelial atrophy
  • Mutations in the tumor suppressor gene p53
  • Mechanical trauma
  • Autoimmune diseases
  • Neurological disorders

 

What are the main symptoms?

Tongue diseases usually present with the following symptoms-

  • The appearance of whitish, yellowish white or greyish patches on the tongue
  • Transformation of patches into lesions
  • Alteration in the surface texture and color of the affected surface
  • Formation of thickened plaques on the tongue
  • The appearance of fluid-filled blisters
  • Dryness, tingling, and burning sensation
  • Metallic taste in the mouth

 

What are the different types of tongue diseases?

Tongue diseases are divided into two broad categories- congenital and acquired. These will be discussed in separate sections.

Congenital 

These diseases are usually present at birth. The common ones are-

Aglossia: It is marked by the complete absence of the tongue at birth.

Ankyloglossia: It is also known as “tied tongue” condition. Here, the tongue is tethered to the floor of the mouth. It causes problems in feeding and oral hygiene.

Hypoglossia: The person has a very short and poorly formed tongue. It may be associated with some other deformities. It is also known as microglossia.

Macroglossia: It can be a genetic or an acquired condition. The person has an abnormally large tongue. This is often seen in Down syndrome patients.

Hamartomatous tongue: Polyp-like mass forms on the tongue.

Glossoptosis: The tongue is displaced downwards or retracted. It may give rise to the cleft palate condition. The patients of Down Syndrome and Pierre Robin syndrome typically have this problem.

Choristomata: Nodule formation occurs on the dorsal surface of the tongue.

Bifid tongue: It is also called a cleft tongue. There may be two conditions-

  • Partially cleft tongue: Appears as a midline fissure
  • Completely cleft tongue: The lateral lingual swellings do not join together

Acquired 

It has the following subtypes-

Vascular: As the name implies, it arises from vascular problems. It has two subtypes-

  • Caviar tongue: the ventral surface of the tongue develops a caviar-like appearance due to an abnormal dilation of the veins present below the tongue.
  • Hemangioma: Presence of vascular tumors on the tongue

Infective: It develops from tongue infections. There are three subtypes-

Glossitis: It is of three types-

  • Median rhomboid glossitis: It is also known as glossal central papillary atrophy or simply central papillary atrophy. Reddish patches are formed on the dorsal surface of the tongue, mostly on the midline. Loss of lingual papillae may or may not occur. It is mostly caused by Candida infection.
  • Strawberry tongue: It is seen in the patients with scarlet fever.
  • Syphilitic glossitis: This is generally seen in tertiary syphilis.

Oral hairy leukoplakia: Rough and hairy lesions form on the sides of the tongue due to infections caused by Epstein-Barr virus.

Oral candidiasis: It is mostly caused by an overuse of antibiotics and corticosteroids. It may also be seen in HIV and Diabetes Mellitus patients.

Traumatic

Accidental trauma to the tongue may occur by mechanical, chemical, thermal or electrical means. The same condition occurs when the tongue is bitten accidentally due to the degeneration of a local anesthetic inferior alveolar nerve block. The tongue may develop ridges on the dorsal side, that may give rise to “crenated tongue”. This happens after repeated incidences of tongue thrusting. Another lesion that is similar to morsicatio buccarum is often caused by continuous chewing of the tongue.

Idiopathic

Here the causes are often not known. A detailed diagnosis is required before specifying the exact cause. A few common types are given below-

  • Geographic tongue: Irregular patches (due to depapillation) appear in different regions of the tongue, giving it a map-like appearance. It may be painless or may cause a mild burning sensation.
  • Leukoplakia: Plaque, keratin, and irregular patch formation occur on the tongue. It is characterized by the formation of irregular white patches on the mucosal linings, accompanied by pain, inflammation, and tenderness.
  • Tongue coating: A prominent coating on the tongue results from the build-up of food debris, desquamated epithelial cells and bacteria. It mainly gives rise to bad breath (halitosis).
  • Burning mouth syndrome: It is a painful, dry and burning sensation inside the mouth that mainly affects the tongue, the roof of the mouth, the back of the mouth and the throat.

 

Diagnosis and treatment

The following diagnostic tests are available-

  • Brush biopsy / exfoliative cytology
  • Patch tests
  • Sialometric analysis
  • Oral culture
  • Biopsy of the tongue and oral mucosa

In the early stages, certain topical and systemic medications can help cure the symptoms. The most important ones are- carotenoids, retinoids, antimycotics and anti-inflammatory drugs. Photodynamic therapy and frenectomy is carried out in the more advanced stages.

 

Treatment & Prevention

The following are the usual treatment methods administered, based on the exact type of tongue disorder diagnosed:

  • Oral thrush – Treated with the help of anti-fungal medications.
  • Burning Mouth Syndrome – This usually occurs as a result of poorly fitting dentures or a nutritional deficiency. Treating these usually helps in bringing relief from the symptoms.
  • Oral leukoplakia – This usually resolves on its own. The only treatment method is avoidance of triggers such as tobacco or alcohol. In case, it turns malignant then the treatment method would encompass methods such as chemotherapy, targeted therapy, surgery etc (methods used to destroy cancer cells).
  • Glossitis – This describes a swollen tongue that could occur as a result of inflammation or infection. It is treated with the help of antibiotics and dietary changes.

Tongue diseases can be effectively prevented by following these important steps related to oral hygiene:

  • Quit smoking and every form of tobacco consumption. It is the biggest culprit of oral diseases and cancers.
  • Avoid alcohol consumption.
  • Get vaccinated for HPV. Practice safe sex.
  • Visit your dentist regularly, even if you don’t have any apparent symptoms of oral diseases.
  • Avoid excess consumption of sweet and acidic foods.
  • Get immediate treatment for mouth ulcers.

 

Facts

  • The average size of the human tongue is 3.3 inches or 8.5 cm for men and 3.1 inches or 7.9 cm for women.
  • Dorsum, or the topmost layer of the tongue, is covered with tiny nodes called papillae. These contain taste buds and serous glands.

Facts

  • Each taste bud contains around 50-150 different receptors cells that enable taste detection.
  • The fact that different areas of the tongue taste different things is a myth.

Facts

  • Smoking and heavy drinking are responsible for maximum number of diseases of the oral cavity. 90% of people detected with oral cancers indulge in tobacco consumption.
  • The EBV (Epstein-Barr Virus) and the HPV (Human Papillomavirus) are the two most potentially dangerous virus when it comes to oral cancer.
