There : There are many things that can cause a growth in the lower lip, from the simple (fibroma or mucocel) to the complex (cancer). There are very few things that can cause a growth in the lower lip that will miraculously disappear. Without obtaining a sample of the tissue to microscopically examine it is impossible to provide a diagnosis. Mucocel, or better known as mucous extravasation phenomena, is the result of damage to one of the hundreds of minor salivary glands located in the mouth. Either the gland itself is damaged or the duct that allows the saliva to escape into the mouth. The result is that the saliva is still produced around meal times but has no where to escape to causing a build up in the tissues. These lesions can grown quite large and become painful. Occasionally the saliva will slowly leak into the mouth allowing the swelling to decompress. Unfortunately this is not the end of the problem. In situations like this i recommend removal of the lesion for diagnostic, and potentially curative, purposes. If you are not comfortable with your present surgeon seek a second opinion. ...Read more

The soles of my feet are getting painful lumps when i walk in flipflops. Also recently, my lips get excessively swollen when i bite inner lip by accident (during eating). Are these related causes?

The soles of my feet are getting painful lumps when i walk in flipflops. Also recently, my lips get excessively swollen when i bite inner lip by accident (during eating). Are these related causes?

Correlation?: It these two issues are related, it isn't readily apparent. It sounds as though one issue is trauma to the lip with eating. If this is a chronic problem - has it been assessed by denta/ oral surgeon? Standard flip flops provide little protection or padding to the soles of the feet. Have you considered footwear that offers more support and protection? ...Read more

Have your doctor: take a look. May be a cyst underneath that was infected. If that's the case, it may become infected again, so it's best to have it properly diagnosed. You can also apply warm compresses to the area, rather than trying to pop it. ...Read more
