Mucocele : If it is on the inside of your lip, it is likely a mucocele from the bite trauma. This can cause a mucous filled, painless cyst to develop. It may fluctuate in size for a while. If it gets larger, sometimes it is necessary to remove it as a minor office surgical procedure

Probably: Trauma can cause a recurrent herpes lesion to appear.
