Bit insides of lip, mouth. Bump inside cheek. Raised vein. Cancerous?

Hello. I am a 41 year old male. I bite my lips and insides of my.mouth. I ve had a very small but hardish bump, like a very small pea, on the inside of my cheek for several Yeats now - between 3-5. Connected to it (I think, at the very least it is right next to it) is what feels like a slightly swollen, raised vain. They are both painless and have been trouble free. I just have developed a worry about the possibility that they arr cancerous. For no reason except my paranoia . My friend says that if they ve been there for years with no change, they.must be nothing. Could you tell me what your thoughts are, please?

Dear Sir,

It is true that if a lesion has been there for a long time, it is less likely to be cancer but you need to be careful if it starts increasing in size or becomes painful.
It is also advisable that you visit a doctor and have him evaluate it once. If he says that it is normal, then you can just follow the progress of the lesion.
