I have noticed a brown little spot in my mouth on my inner cheek, nothing big and recently half of my lip is numb what could this be?

Get evaluated: There is no way to diagnose "a little brown spot" over the internet. It could range from a freckle to blood spot to something more serious. I doubt it's related to your numbness which really concerns me. It should concern you too. See a local dentist for an evaluation.
