Purplish bump on inside of lip. Bruise on the outerside. What could it be?

Hello. A couple days ago I found a dark purple-ish thing on the inside of my lip. It has one bump that feels like a tiny rock. Now, two days later, the coloring lightened but still have that one bump. Also, it s freaking me out because now appeared a bruise like thing on the outer side, below my lip. But same area. Any ideas?

Hi and welcome to HCM.Thank you for your query.
If you dont remember any hit it sounds like it could be hemangioma which is commonly foundin this area. Also it can be any other benign lesion and the right diagnosis can be established only by biopsy. YOu need to consult ENT doctor for further tests and treatment. WIsh you good health.
