Nontender nodule under upper lip at gumline
An_247267 posted:
I recently noticed that I have a unilateral non-tender hard nodule under my upper lip at the gum line. I would like to have some feedback about what this possibly could be.
Gwen Cohen Brown, DDS, FAAOMP responded:
Hi An_427267,

Unfortunately I cannot provide accurate guidance without more clinical information. Howver, in general, nodules in the upper lip are slightly more worrisome that nodules in the lower lip which tend to be due to trauma. If the nodule is still present after a month I suggest that you see an oral surgeon for a biopsy and a definitive diagnosis.

I hope this helps.
