I have a bump on the inside of my lower

Patient

Q: I have a bump on the inside of my lower lip. At the top of the bump it is sort of white. It's pretty big and it hurts when I touch it. I've been doing research and it seems like a microcele but I'm not sure. I've had it for over a year. I've been able to pop it hundreds of times, and after I pop it it goes away for about a week but then reappears. Any ideas what it is? Is it a mucocele?
