What is wrong in my mouth?

I believe that I have a cavity, my tooth was really hurting yesterday. Today I woke up with a weird bump on the inside of my top lip. it doesn’t look like a canker sore or anything and my top lip just feels a little swollen. i’m not really sure what it is.

You may have an infection. Please see a dentist as soon as possible to get it looked at.
Good luck.

Dr. Hussein Shivji
Since you had a really bad toothache recently and woke up with a swollen lip, it is possible the tooth could be infected. The next course of action should be to contact your dentist for an emergency visit for further investigation. More information is needed to make a proper diagnosis and treatment.
I hope this helps.
