My lip ring healed over i got a lip ring (it's a flat-backed stud) a few months ago, but last week it healed completely over the back. I have an appointment for a physical next week. Is it safe to wait, and will it be difficult to remove?

Probably OK: Assuming the bar is small and not very sharp, it may pass through you in a couple of days without causing any damage at all. If you develop pain, nausea/vomiting and/or stop having bowel movements, you should see your doctor. ...Read more

Such swelling will resolve without any treatment but may take a few days as long as there is no associated inflammatory reaction.
