Mucocele aka "Bubble on Lip"

Mucocele aka "Bubble on Lip"

The patient came in because "a bubble on lip" filled with blood and a clear fluid that had been there for about one month.  

He said there was no pain.  He said it drained once but then came back. He reported no trauma to the area prior to the appearance of the bubble.  The patient felt no discomfort during palpation. 

The patient was referred to a oral surgeon for excision.
