About two years ago I got my tongue pierced with no problems, a year ago I tore the piercing due to playing with it. I started to form a small keloid that slowly grew bigger. It stopped growing about four months ago but I'm afraid it might be getting bigger again. I now have a pea sized keloid around my piercing, what do I do?

Possible keloid on tongue
It's possible that the growth on your tongue is a keloid, but it may just be a normal scar. I would recommend seeing a facial plastic surgeon or oral surgeon to have your tongue examined. It's possible that a minor excision of the mass could be needed to remove it.
