Red Bump on Lip

Hello Forum! I am brand new to the forum and I am in need of some help! About three weeks ago my little guy started to develop a bump just under his nose. Did some research and thought it could somehow be a pimple or ingrown hair. But as some time went on it grew a bit in size and has gotten me worried. Over the past week it hasn't grown at all and maybe shrunk a little. I've tried putting neosporin on it but am wondering if it could be a MST or something to that extent!

Time to follow up with the vet- like you, I would worry about the possibility of a MCT. Hopefully it is nothing to worry about, but it is is a mast cell tumor, you want to act sooner rather than later. Would guess (I'm not a vet, but I had a dog with a MCT) they will maybe do a needle aspirate to try to identify it- histiocytomas can look similar to that as well, but given the disparity between possible outcomes, you want to be sure what you are dealing with.
