What does a bump inside the lower lip indicate?

Hi. I noticed a bump on the inside of my lower lip. At first it felt like I had accidentally bitten my lip. A day after the bump popped up, there was a small bruise on my face where the bump is. The bruise went away, but the bump is still there, yet much smaller. It’s been the same size for almost a week. Since the bump first appeared, I have had a constant headache. Please help. I am so scared I have cancer.

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.
You suffer from mucocele probably. Do not worry. it is a mucous containing cyst. It is a benign and self limiting condition. It may go away without treatment. If persists,consult the dermatologist or ENT specialist. He might treat according to the situation.

Looking for possible cause and remedy for swelling of lips with what appears to be pitikia on the inside of both upper and lower lips. Issue began when crown on tooth broke off...gum began to swell and became painful. Have been taking 500mg Amoxicillin daily for approximately 1 week. Swelling and pain of gums has been alieviated but lips have now developed the (assumed) petikia and burn when tongue is pressed against inside of lower lip. There is now a cluster of 2-3 small bumps under tongue where it is attached to lower mouth area. This limits ability to extend tongue to upper portion of upper lip (between lip and teeth).

I have a small white bump you can only see when my bottom lip is stretched. It pulsates like a pimple. It s not on the edge but more towards the inside or upper area. It is a little firm with some swelling especially since I tried to squeeze it. Nothing came out just water from my eyes as I began to tear from sensitivity. I ve read about HSP as well as HPV and other things like swollen pores or things in that matter also stress related factors. I haven t been diagnosed with HPV but I m sure I have it due to warts in lower areas. But nonetheless. ... I m more concerned about my face for it is public. Any suggestions?
