Mucosal warts: Warts do occur on mucosal surfaces like the lip. And one of the changes that the virus induces is a change in the blood vessels, so it could be red. More often the epithelial changes predominate however and it appears a bit whiter than the surrounds. Still if it persists you should have it seen as there are other things that can cause red raised bumps too. ...Read more

There : 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

Check it out: Random bumps are always a concern for the doctor. Generally speaking , it's probably nothing but you want to be sure as abnormalities can present as symptoms to worse scenarios. It's possible that its related to the trauma during surgery or postoperatively if you bit your lip. Usually time and not messing with it will help it go away. ...Read more

What might I do to get warts off my lips?

What might I do to get warts off my lips?

Lots of ways: See a dermatologist. You can use the liquid nitrogen, liquid nitrous oxide (this is what i like to use), topical acids, dermal scraping. You can also try oral Cimetidine (400 mg three times a day for 12-16 weeks). This is very safe and had the side effect of getting rid of warts for many people of adult size and weight (japma november 1, 1995 vol. 85 no. 11 717-718 ). ...Read more
