How to get rid of tumor inside the lip?

Hi,
I went for a dental cleaning and after one week, I got some time of tumour inside my lip. They have removed it, but I believe I have another one. I do I get rid of this. And was this the cause of dental cleaning??? They told me it was a virus I got, but I haven't done anything

Thanks for your query, I have gone through your query.
The tumor what you are telling can be a fibroma or lipoma or a fibrosed mucocele. This usually occurs secondary to lip biting or chronic irritation. Consult a good oral physician and get it evaluated. The recurrence can be because of the incomplte removal in the previous surgery. Nothing to be panic, consult a good oral surgeon and get it excised. It is not because of viral infection.
I hope my answer will help you, take care.
