Lump on lip

04/01/2009

Question:

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.

Answer:
