Puffy around mouth, bump under chin

It is puffy all around my mouth and recently I noticed a small lump right under my chin. It is not a bump that sticks out, you have to feel for it in order to know that it's there. I was just wondering if this lump can be blocking the fluids from draining around my mouth, causing the puffy appearance? And will it resolve on its own or should I see a doctor?

  • My aunt told me the bump is a cyst. Can a cyst block the fluids in my face from draining or is it unrelated?
