Lump on lip
last nite i felt my upper lip was a bit swollen and this morning when i woke up it had gotten bigger i can feel a small lump there and it lookes like i have a "fat lip" although i dont remember biting it or splitting it due to dryness. i have never suffered from cold sores and although this trobs a little is quite symptomless.
It is really not possible to make a diagnosis based on your description. I would recommend you have this evaluated by an ear, nose, throat physician for an examination and assessment including whether anything further might be recommended.
