    White bump inside lower lip, picture included.
    33thirtythree posted:
    It is a white bump, or kind of feels like a little flap of skin, or a growth, on the inside of my lower lip. It has been there for I'm guessing 2 months. I does not hurt and it is not something you can pop.
    It has really started to concern me, because I thought it was probably nothing major and that it would just go away. I have made a doctors appointment, but it is not for a couple more weeks. In the meantime, I am really stressing out.
    I have included a picture, and it is not gross or anything. I know the picture isn't all that great, but it's the best I could do. I figured I would at least give you some idea of what it looks like.
    Does anybody have any insight as to what this might be all about?
    Thank you very much!

    I have basically the same thing. This flap has been on my lower lip for about two weeks now and I'm not sure who I should see: doctor, dentist, oral surgeon?
