Blood-filled blemishes

I have recurring blood-filled blemishes on my face - surrounding tissue swells - blemish has a hard tip.  When punctured, there is only blood and surrounding area widens and darkens.  They last for more than a week and begin to fade away.  At times, I have noticed a small oval shaped mass under my skin, below my eye and close to the side bridge of my nose.  It is not painful but but I can move it if I press with my finger.

Hello,
If the lip biopsy is indicating leukoplakia then chances are more that it is leukoplakia. Moreover your symptoms are confirming this possibility. Leukoplakia may occur in response to chronic irritation from dentures or from tobacco use or pipe smoking, or it may represent dysplasia.
Apart from liquid nitrogen, other treatment options include C02 laser and surgical excision. It has to be removed because it can turn malignant.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.

Hello,
Sorry replied to an earlier post first. It can be due to blood blister or small cherry angiomas. The underlying cause for the development of cherry angiomas is not understood, so nothing can be predicted about their prevention but rest assured; they are harmless. If they are to be removed for cosmetic reasons, electrosurgery and cryosurgery can be used. More recently pulsed dye laser or Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment are also used.
