Treatment Of The Bumps On The Lips?
Good luck, my name is Mahendra, I want to ask about the protrusion above the lips, according to the doctor, can it be said to be a tumor? if so, how do you handle it besides having to operate? thank you
A tumor is an abnormal growth of body cells. Usually, the symptoms are indicated by a protrusion as a form of excessive growth. However, lumps on certain body parts can also be caused by other medical conditions. The following causes can cause your complaint:
mucocele, blockage of the salivary duct causing lumps. Infection by the Fordyce spot herpes virus, a white-yellowish spot containing tumor oil glands, can be benign and malignant etc. Because it can be caused by various conditions, it is necessary to do a direct examination by a doctor. The doctor will ask since when, was it enlarged, painful or not related to your lump. Some additional checks can be done if needed. Treatment will adjust to the underlying cause.
Here are some things you can do regarding your condition:
Maintain the cleanliness of the oral area and its surroundings Avoid squeezing or breaking the lump. Compress if you feel pain, you can also take paracetamol. Get enough rest and eat nutritious food
If the lump is getting bigger, feels pain, and starts to worry you, it is better to visit the doctor immediately to get the right treatment.
