Surgical excision is the treatment of choice, in addition, associated minor salivary gland should be excised to avoid recurrence. Seeing an experienced oral surgeon is advised.

sir..if i left this mucocele as it is..than can it make any serious health problem for me in future ? coz.i m.tired of going to dentist again and again ..i got 2 time laser in 4 months... this mucocele became just bcoz i bitten my lip very badly while eating
Mucocele is not life threatening , but spontaneous remission is highly unlikely.seeing a right surgeon will fix your problem permanently.
sir today i have checked my lower lip mucocele in torch light its almost gone and i hope in few days scar will also go away... i have checked my complete mouth and tounge its all clear no blisters...white or red patChes nothing is there...but sometimes i felt itching at the lower part of my cheek... but i hve checked in light its all.cleAr...no bump..no lump no.bliater no any kind of white or red patch no.swelling..so wat can be the cause of itchiNg ?
