Pink Bump on Lip. Please help.

So about 2-3 days ago I noticed that our girl Anna had a bump on her lip. I've been keeping an eye on it to see if it gets better but so far it looks pretty much the same. I am wondering if I should make a vet appointment for her or give it a couple more days and maybe it will go away. Has anyone experienced anything similar?

I've included a picture. Please let me know if you have any advice. thanks!

Don't know if that's a papilloma. Dogs especially young ones get them on their lips and mouth. They're contagious and can take weeks to disappear but are generally not serious. Hopefully someone else will recognize what your dog's got. How old is the dog?

The HPV virus guess above seems right to me(?). Glad she is going to the vet. However, whenever I get worried about things like that, it turns out just to be a ding and nothing serious. Hope all is well!

If she were my dog, I would take her to the vet, just to be on the safe side.
Please let us know what they say-praying she is alright.

I don't think that is papilloma. My younger dog had puppy warts when she was about 3 months old. They were whiter and seemed to "hang" from the skin more. This "bump" seems to have a centre. Could it be a bite of some sort? If it is not bothering him and is not changing, a non-urgent trip to the vet maybe in order.

It definitely looks like a papilloma to me, but not the kind dogs usually get. Our Chloe had that same kind (cutaneous inverted papilloma) on her abdomen as a pup. I thought they were the same kind that dogs normally get so I expected it to fall off like Jack's did. They didn't and eventually had to be surgically removed. The plus side is yours is fairly small right now. Chloe's ended up very big and were difficult to remove (there were 3 of them). I would schedule a vet visit and keep an eye on it, if it looks to be getting larger then getting it removed sooner rather than later is preferable. Worst case it's a small procedure to remove it either way though.
