Default Red bump on Kayo's bottom lip

Im new to this so i dont even know if Im submitting this right, or how I will even check this in the future but I need help! My 1yr1mo boxer kayo just developed a bump on his chin. Its reddish and is about half the size of a pea, I have seen a lot of posts regarding canine acne but it is not poppable. It does not seem to be bothering the dog but I dont want to wait too long to see if its going to go down and god forbid its cancer or something more serious. Any suggestions?[attachment=0:1p9hmb5n]_Media_Card_BlackBerry_pictures_IMG00001-20090624-0922.jpg[/attachment:1p9hmb5n]

I am not sure, but that kinda looks like what Tess had on her lip/chin she had a few of them and we just got some stridex acne pads and cleaned her mouth after she would eat and they went away... you could try doing that to start and if it doesnt go away I would say go to the vet and have them check it out, cause if it is cancerous you def wanna get it removed before it spreads to other organs... all you really have to get done is they stick a needle in it and look at the cells to see if they are cancer cells and if they arent then its no big deal but if they are then they will prob wanna do a biopsy and send it off to the lab to find out exactly what it is, there is an oral tumor that is often seen in boxers, I am pretty sure it is called epilus and I dont think that it is malignant, but I would have to check for sure
