Piece of rubber in my lip, What should I do ?

Hi. Yesterday as I was taking out my lip ring to clean it (basically is an earring with a rubber back to keep it from falling out) I was pulling the ring out when i realized the rubber back was still in my lip... and now that little piece of rubber is still stuck inside my lip and i can't get it out. It doesn't hurt, but I'm worried about it though. What should i do?

Hi, please consult a general and oral surgeon. A surgery needs to be performed to take the rubber piece out. Hope this help you. Take care!
