Neither: Likely a traumatic ulcer/swelling. You might find yourself biting it a few more times before it finally resolves. Eat slowly and deliberately. Good Luck.

Trauma to the lip: is quite common. However, the mouth has many blood vessels, which promotes quick healing. Please rinse with salt water or a hydrogen peroxide solution to speed the healing process.
