Red bump: It might be a "pyogenic granuloma" which is a benign growth of capillary tissue. A dermatologist could probably take care of it quite easily. If it bothers you then have it checked.

Lip lesion: Cannot possibly diagnose or even speculate on what this may be without being able to see and examine it. Show this to your family doctor. Best wishes.
