What are mucous cysts?
A mucous cyst, also known as a mucocele, is a fluid-filled swelling that occurs on the lip or the mouth.
The cyst develops when the mouth’s salivary glands become plugged with mucus. Most cysts are on the lower lip, but they can occur anywhere inside your mouth. They’re usually temporary and painless. However, cysts can become permanent if they’re not treated.
Our oral surgeons Carl Manhem and Matt Bullock are able to remove mucous cysts following a consultation.
