Purple lumps on the bottom lips, cause of concern ?

I have a purple lump on the inside of my bottom lip and now I have another. They seem to be getting larger and then sometimes disappear. Is this something to be concerned about?

General & Family Physician Dr. Chakravarthy Mazumdar's  Response

The lump appears to be a cyst. Mucinous cysts / mucocoele are common on the oral side of the lower lip. The other possibility is apical periodontal cysts. They are generally benign and not concerned about.

Usually these cyst grow slowly and regress on their own. If not they need to be drained surgically. So keep a watch on these cysts.
