Question Bumps Inside Lip? Cancer Spreading? Oral Cancer? HELP PLEASE

I have had a small clear bump on the inside of my lower lip for a little over a month now. It wont go away. I have tried putting peroxide on it, washing my mouth with an antibacterial mouthwash and nothing will make it go away. I won't have health insurance to go to the doctor for another month.
I can squeeze it between my fingernails and it will pop and a clear thick liquid comes out. But it always comes back. I have another one that just popped up a few days ago near it also on my bottom inside lip.
I was told that some signs of cancer spreading can be sores but is it these kind? Is it something harmless that will go away on its own or could it be something serious. I have lumps in my breast that my doc has me scheduled with a breast specialist next month when my health insurance kicks in. I have fibrocystic breasts and a caffeine cyst he wants me to be checked out for just to be safe.
Can anyone tell me have you ever had these kind of bumps? If so what are they and what can I do?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks

A lot of different things can cause blisters in your mouth. It is unlikely to be cancer as cancer doesn't look like this. It will probably go away on it's own once you stop messing with it

Ask the breast surgeon next month. Even though he/she is a surgeon, they'd know if it needed treatment. Good luck to you.
