I had a mucocele removal yesterday and i still feel numbness in my left sid of the lower lip which the mucocele was in . Is that normal?
A year after my mucocele removal my lip is still swelling up at the incision site. It is painful and very noticeable. What can I do.

They commonly occur inside the lower lip and sometimes in the floor of the mouth.
