Patient :I've had a bump on my upper right side of my lip that I thought was a cold sore or a pimple. I've had it for a week or more. I thought nothing of it, I'm 33 and I get pimples, everywhere. Well this morning it's huge, red and swollen. My upper right side of my lip is fat. I'm planning on going to the hospital once I can get a ride, as i can't go to my doctor without a copay or an appointment. What is wrong with my lip? What is the bump? Do i have to worry?
