Raised area on the edge of lip, no change in make up. Could it be cancer?

i have a raised area on the edge of my lip that is on both the lip and the upper skin. Sometimes it is more raised than o ther times. It is not a blister . It is somewhat itchy. It does not burst and scab. I have not changed my makeup. It is annoying and I hope it is not a cancer . I had a skin treatment in September to remove all traces of any possible skin cancer on my face and the GP thought this bit may have been missed. It is so close, and partially on the lip and he froze it with dry ice but it still feels flaky and a bit swollen.

Your clinical history does not match with skin cancer still some questions need to be answered Are you involved in a job where you have to stay under the sun for a long time?
what is the colour of the raised area?
have these swellings increased in very short time ?
depending on answers proper diagnosis can be made. Anyway in case of any query a tissue diagnosis can be made. Consult your dermatologists. Take care.
