Salivary gland?: There are ancillary salivary glands in the lip. If over time the habit of lip biting or sucking may have caused an extravasation cyst or disruption of the salivary gland and may stay swollen. Sometimes they will resorb over time; sometimes it requires surgical excision by an oral surgeon.
