I have a tiny white lump on the inside of me cheek right beside where I bite my lip. Doesn't hurt What could it be a week ago had a blood blister to?

Scar: This is most likely a healing reaction, in other words, a potential scar. Unfortunately it tempts you to continue to bite the area, both intentionally and unintentionally. If you want it to heal, avoid doing that. A blood blister is a superficial bruise. The tissue was hurt and now it's trying to heal.

My 4 year old has what looks like a blood blister on lower bottom inside of lip. Should we ask her pediatrician? Been there for a couple months.

Yes: Could be a hemangioma (blood vessel abnormality), or chronic injury from biting her lip, or other cause. Best to get it checked by your pediatrician. Even if it is completely harmless, if it gets in the way of her teeth every time she takes a bite, it will continue to get irritated.

Cancer: At your age it would be extremely rare to have cancer of the lip. If this lesion persists see your primary care doctor or a dermatologist. If it's inside of your lip an ENT physician may be your route.

Mucocele: Likely a mucocele, which is a minor salivary gland with a blocked duct. Whether a mucocele, or another problem (possibly a minor salivary gland tumor) it should be removed by an oral surgeon and sent for biopsy.
