BB under tongue ..
BB under tongue ..  
Good Day

Just noticed a tiny blood blister underneath my tongue while brushing my teeth. What could cause this? I attached a picture as well. Any treatment needed? Thanks for your time.

Answer
most of the time, we do not know what causes these...many are genetic. as long as they are not getting larger and larger, they can be left alone. see what happens over the next month or two. if you are still concerned, make an appointment with an oral surgeon. they are the ones who can treat these if needed. let me know if you have any questions.
