Exclamation This thing in my mouth!!

Alright well 1 1/2 months ago i had a canker sore on the inside of my bottom right lip. Well it went away after a week.
Well now in that same spot, there is like a pocket or bubble. It doesn't hurt or anything. I looks like something is under it.Like maybe a lump? I don't know if it is filled with blood or what?

What is it? What should I do?

Re: This thing in my mouth!!

See your regular doctor or a dentist.

Sounds like a "mucocele" or mucous cyst, they're common. Usually they don't require any treatment and resolve by themselves in a few weeks but you do need a doc to make sure it isn't anything serious.

(and if it really bothers you, they can lance it)
