Red face Swollen Lip ; Tumour?

For more background info on Ponyo, as she currently has a whole bunch of problems:

Ponyo's right lip is swollen and I'm worried that it may be a tumour. (She's only a month and a half old, she can't die, not now!)

The underside seems redder than the surrounding non-swollen areas.

Please tell me it isn't oral cancer...

It doesn't look like a tumour to me, it looks more like an injury or bruise.

I agree with Nikki. My cat actually had a rotten tooth that presented itself in a similar way. There was swelling and he was struggling to eat. The tooth was removed and that was that, problem gone. I can imagine that various oral problems might present in the same way.
