Mucocoele: This is not uncommon and sometimes occurs post trauma such as biting your inner lip or heat trauma. Usually lasts a short time unless one continues to bite the lip.

Painful?prior episod: Is the lesion painful? Have you had prior similar episodes?
Avoid intimate oral contact with others. Should lesions increase in number, become painful, seek medical attention as soon as possible.
Have you recently been placed on new medications or are you on any medications that might cause such lesions? Check Google or other search engines.
