Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

A mole like projection has developed in my lip. It does not get cured. I bite my lip often. But, I feel it is very abnormal on my lip. Can you please help me?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

It is a cystic lesion of the buccal mucosa probably swelling of a minor salivary gland (attachment removed to protect patient identity). If it has been present as such for a long time and especially if it is increasing in size, then you would have to visit a dentist for its drainage or excision. It will not get cured by any medication or cream. However, you would have to stop biting your lips as it may cause aggravation.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
