Mucocele?: Possibly a mucocele... Best to see a dentist to determine if that is the correct diagnosis. They can disappear on their own, especially in younger people. Steroids and oil of primrose can both be used to treat them. They can also be removed surgically. They may reoccur.

Usually 1 of 2 : Both benign, but get checked out. Sounds like either mucocele or hemangioma.

Difficult to answer: Without seeing a photo or your lip it is difficult to diagnose. It could possibly be a mucocele which is caused by the damage or blockage of the minor saliva glands located in the inner lip lining

Blocked duct: It might be a blocked duct of a tiny salivary gland. An oral surgeon can make the diagnosis and remove the tiny gland.
