If the patch is for two days, it does not worry me.. if this patch persists for more than 15 days or grows suddenly then you need to consult a oncologist for better assessment.

Hi, you have discovered a tongue patch two days since. I hope this fact is right. And so I assume, your tongue was completely normal two days before. If this is so, you need not worry about cancer. If it causes persistent itch or pain for more than 2 weeks, then get it checked by a dentist or ENT doctor. Bye
