Doctor Cameron :

hello

Doctor Cameron :

it is inside your mouth, correct?

Doctor Cameron :

how long have you had this?

JACUSTOMER-ooazx8t9- : Inside yes. Noticed it this evening but seems to have got bigger
JACUSTOMER-ooazx8t9- : Hi sorry but is this working?
Doctor Cameron :

this is workinhg

Doctor Cameron :

sorry I had to move my cat off the computer

Doctor Cameron :

Any pain?

JACUSTOMER-ooazx8t9- : Mines sleeping. No pain
Doctor Cameron :

ha ha

Doctor Cameron :

so when you pull down the lip to look inside your mouth it is just inside

Doctor Cameron :

did it look clear or see through?

Doctor Cameron :

or perhaps a little bluish?

JACUSTOMER-ooazx8t9- : yep it's clear. Small blood inside. To be honest it looks like a clear blister
Doctor Cameron :

yeah

Doctor Cameron :

this is called a mucous cyst

Doctor Cameron :

No big deal.

Doctor Cameron :

I personally have had a couple of them

Doctor Cameron :

They usually go down on their own easily. Sometimes they can become large and irritating and require removal

Doctor Cameron :

If you are gutsy, you can pop it with a needle (sterilised)

JACUSTOMER-ooazx8t9- : Can I just bite it?
Doctor Cameron :

yeah. I have done that too :-)

Doctor Cameron :

it just pops and is gone

JACUSTOMER-ooazx8t9- : Cheers dude.
Doctor Cameron :

that being said, if it doesn't resolve, you need to get it checked out- make sure it is not some strange growth

Doctor Cameron :

You are welcome

Doctor Cameron :

I hope that I provided you with excellent service :-)?

JACUSTOMER-ooazx8t9- : Have a good day/eve/night depending where you are
Doctor Cameron :

pacific coast :-)

Doctor Cameron :

I hope that I provided you with excellent service :-)

JACUSTOMER-ooazx8t9- : afternoon then
Doctor Cameron :

thanks

Doctor Cameron :

Did you receive excellent service?

Doctor Cameron :

hello?

Doctor Cameron :

are you biting the lip lesion? lol
