Fibroma on lip

I recently was diagnosed as having a fibroma on my bottom lip.  The surgeon that looked at it said it was a simple procedure of removing the lump.  However, at the time he not only removed the lump, but also did a biopsy removing a section of my lip.  During the healing, I have been left with a small indent in the line of my lip.   What concerns me most though is the lumping under the lip surface which does not seem to want to recede and the pain which i feel whenever i smile or move my mouth.  This is really uncomfortable and stressing me out a bit.  It feels like having an ulcer which you can't get rid of.  It has only been about 4 weeks since the surgery.  Will the pain dissappear over time and will the lump under the surface recede over time.

The indent caused due to removal of fibroma should heal with time.For the pain,you can take some anti inflammatory pain killers like Diclofenac.If the scar or indent remains,then laser resurfacing can be used for this purpose.

I hope it helps. Take care and pls do keep me posted on how you are doing or in case you have any additional doubts. Kind regards.

I will give the pain killers a go.  Getting rid of the pain is my main priority, so if this works, i will be in your debt.
