I know you guys aren't doctors but I was wondering if anyone had any idea of what this is. Yesterday I noticed a small bump in my mouth on the inside of my lip. (stretch your lip out and the bump I have is right in front of the line) It really isn't visible but it is raised and kind of white. It doesn't hurt or anything like that I just can feel it when I run my tongue inbetween my lips and my teeth. Maybe I hit my chin on something and it cause a bump in my mouth? It's not a canker sore because it doesn't hurt and doesn't look like the pictures I found on the internet. It just looks like a pimple or something. The area around it looks normal and fine. I know you guys can't give me a diagnosis but maybe somebody has had the same thing or kinda have an idea of what it is? Can you get pimples in your mouth?? Thanks

Is it possible that you've bitten your lips or something ? It can be caused by a lot of things.

I'd say wait until a few days and if it doesn't heal (most injuries heal quite rapidly when it is in your mouth) go see your doc. By looking at it, he will for sure be more able than us to tell you what it is and if it is harmful or not.
