Weird Skin looking thing hanging in mouth, please suggest me

Hi I have something hanging off the inside part of my upper lip in front of my front two teeth. It is hanging superficially and I noticed it a couple days ago, but it has become more prominent. It is nonpainful, easily move-able, and is flat, smooth and kind of circular. When I left my lip it I can see it pretty clear, I thought it seemed cystic but I am not sure anymore. Please let me know what it could be. I brush regularly but havent dont anything else to it.

hi jason
welcome to HealthcareMagic forum
most probably you are having some benign condition like retention cystor condition knows papilloma
or a hemangioma
sometimes accidental bite causing injury and if not teated may heal giving rise to skin tags
better consult surgeon or a plastic surgeon

hi jason
what colour is that stuff , what size is that how do u rate the consistency, is it soft like your ear lobe or firm like your nose bridge, does it disappear for a few seconds when you press it for seconds and leave. or do you have space between your two front teeth in which case it could even be due to friction.
