The tongue is an important part of the mouth and can be affected by various diseases. Below are some of the most common tongue diseases:

Mouth ulcers: are round or oval lesions that appear on the surface of the tongue and can be painful. They are often caused by a mouth injury, infection, or stress.

Geographic tongue: is a condition in which the tongue has a map-like appearance with red, white, and smooth areas that move and change shape. It often does not cause any symptoms.

Hairy tongue: occurs when the taste buds on the tongue do not shed normally and accumulate on the surface, resulting in a hairy tongue and an abnormal taste in the mouth.

Oral candidiasis: is a fungal infection in the mouth that can affect the tongue, gums, and other areas of the mouth. The tongue may have a white or yellow coating and can be painful.

Lingual cyst: is a fluid-filled sac that forms on the tongue. It can be painless, but if infected, it can be painful.

It is important to consult a dentist or doctor if you experience any of these symptoms or have any concerns about oral health.
