Lip retention cyst
What is a lip retention cyst?
It is a painless, fluid containing swelling of the lip due to mucus from the small salivary gland leaking into the soft tissue. It is usually preceded by minor trauma (biting) to the gland. It usually ranges from 5 to 20mm in size and it commonly occurs at the lower lip, but it can also be found anywhere within the oral cavity.
