Hi. I recently noticed a distortion of my chin area and my bottom lip. I previously had basal cell carcinoma on my chin and I had the Mohs procedure which left me with a scar about two inches long on my chin. Then I started noticing very fine red veins radiating from a center spot on my chin and then recently I noticed my chin and bottom lip becoming slightly deformed and a raised round spot about the size of a dime on my bottom lip. Also, I have had dry lips and crusting along the edges of my lips. I am not sure if these things are related. Do you have any idea what might be going on with my chin and lips? There are obvious slight distortions of my chin below my lip and my bottom lip.
