Got a horse shoe deep cut on bottom lip 5stitches an it's been 3 days an I got a fat bump in middle like it's not stitched flat will it go down or am I gonna have a weird shaped lip?
Maybe, maybe not: Generally, if the cut is limited to the red of the lips, it is ususlly left open to self heal. Bacteriostatic factors in saliva keep it from festering. If the cut crosses over into the junction between facial skin and the red, stitches may be needed to line up the edges and prevent healing in a jaged line. ...Read more

Probably bled: More than likely you caused bleeding inside the lip, and this formed a fibrous clot that now feels like a lump. If that, it will, slowly resorb. But it could be more serious like an infection/abscess, that may need antibiotic and surgical drainage/removal. A human bite is the dirtiest and most dangerous in the animal kingdom.

Without seeing it, it's hard to say. Stitches keep wounds closed while they heal and they are a bit irritating to the body, so sometimes the skin where the stitch is placed will appear pink/red- but sometimes that's the first sign of an infection.
Please call the provider who did the procedure. They will want to know about any problems you are having, and will likely want to see the area. ...Read more
