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

Big picture: Paul, please do everything that you possibly can to stop smoking. Lung cancer is a horrible disease and you're asking for it by smoking; you're also guaranteeing that your level of physical fitness and ability to exercise will be less now and far less in later life than it would be if you're a non-smoker. You're worrying instead about a wart on your lip? Take that health concern and translate it. ...Read more
