I have had a small bump on the inside of my upper lip. I first noticed it when I was 19 and am now 30. It is non painful but recently it seems to be getting larger and can be seen when I slightly open my mouth. I also notice now that it pulses and never noticed this before but it may be due to it getting larger. What could this be and is a dentist the right doctor to see for this?
I could be a mucocoele(this is where the duct of the mucous glands get blocked and fills up with fluid). That is one possibility. I think you should consult an oral surgeon for the definitive diagnosis.
