What do you mean by "low risk". You may be needlessly worrying. As for the sore on your is probably a canker sore that are very common...and believed to be triggered by stress. It wouldn't be your only problem if you were experiencing ARS. However, if you placed yourself at risk, get tested. worrying won't do anything...testing will. (And, most likely what it will do is relieve your anxiety)

A sore on your tongue could be anything. What was your risk?
