Are you referring to your right lower lip near the corner of your mouth? Did you wake up with this?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Sorry, no. It is the color of my lower lip and right in the fat part of the lip, a little to one side. Looks a little like a pimple. I am terrified it is skin cancer. Noticed it a week or so ago
Expert:  Dr Stan replied 9 months ago.

It looks like it may be a benign nevus especially since there has been no bleeding. May I suggest a visit to a Dermatologist for possible biopsy. This cold also be a cancer such as a non-melanotic melanoma.

I am available to answer any additional questions you may have. Thank you for allowing me to provide assistance. I hope your medical problem(s) are resolved soon and you feel better. If you find the information I provided helpful, please rate me with 5-Stars. Thank you
