I developed a large bump on the inside of my lower lip just yesterday. It definitely wasn’t there before yesterday, I am 100% sure. It is red and about a quarter inch long. It doesn’t really hurt, but I can feel it and I became preoccupied today with it. I don't remember biting it or burning it, it just bumped out. Any ideas on what it could be, mouth cancer?

I think it is a bit early to worry about a mouth cancer. The likeliest cause for a swelling in the lower lip is trauma…think you might bit the lip or bite….sometimes an allergy can cause it. See your doctor about it if it doesn't improve in the next few days. This is not recommendation, but I put acyclovir on anything that occurs on my lip. The lumps which are usually on my low lip are pimple.

I also just woke up today to discover this "bump" on my lower lip. Never had 1 before, and there is no pain or discomfort just the lump. I researched cold sores, and lip lumps, and I found it matches none of this criteria, thats the good news. Bad news is it bugs me and i play with it, any ideas on how to get rid of this?

This is the second time that I have had a bump on my bottom lip, it's under the skin, on the left side, mostly painless unless I bite it.

I have a bad habit of biting my lips, and this usually appears when I'm stressing out. There is a vitamin that I took before and it made the bump disappear by the next day. I can't remember what exactly the vitamin is called-- but know that this isn't something you have to run to the doctor for and its not oral cancer.

Hi,
I've had the same bump in my inner lip for 1 1/2 months. Weirdly enough, it popped up the day I found out my boyfriend of 4 1/2 years was cheating on me. It still hasn't gone away...I feel no pain, I noticed it tingles and swells a little bit when I'm stressed out. I don't know if I should try and pop it. I too have found myself playing with it.

These are often caused by stress, as i found out today when i got my exam results, an hour later it popped up. You just gotta wait it out i guess

It is most likely Mucocele. I think it is caused by some function being blocked or disrupted. If you bite your lip and lot and then stress out it will more likely grow. Its like a big blob of mucous or something under your skin. It's not that big; won't kill you.

P.S. I don't know this for sure...... too long since I learned it I could have mixed some facts up lol.

UPDATE!!! Ok so its been about 7 months and I finally had my bump removed!!! It wasn't that painful but the doc did want to knock me out but I told him no. He used local anasthetic, removed it and burned off some... I'ts still a little sensitive but the stitches are out and I can smile freely once again... :D

Its called a Mucous Cyst and most dental professionals can remove it with a laser procedure. It will no go away in most cases, it will just continue to get bigger as the person bites it over and over. I have seen several removed at my office and the healing process is very quick.
