My horse has something similar, but it was hard as rock and it was on his chin/jawbone?

My first thought would be that he is having an allergic reaction to something that he ate from the coloration on the inside of is lip and the overall look of the lump.

Thanks guys, he's 14 so definitely not his teeth.
Its now 7am and I am heading out the paddock to check on him, so if it's not gone the vet will be receiving a call. Will let you know when I get home what the outcome was, I really am leaning towards an allergic reaction though, whether it be to a bite or sting or something he ate like Ryle said.

Update. Checked him this morning and the swelling on the outside has gone way down on the outside although he's still swollen on the inside of his lip. Didn't call the vet although will be watching him like a hawk. Updated photos below

Is it a solid mass attached to the muscle, or is it loose you can move it around, so to speak?

Can move it around, haven't checked it yet today, but it has been getting smaller every day now.

Usually serious things (tumours, etc) are attached to the muscle so can't be moved. Sounds like it's not too serious.
Could be he even knicked himself with his front foot while grazing. It's amazing what horses can do to themselves. ;)

All gone! Yay! Still absolutely no idea what caused it, but he doesn't have a lumpy face anymore.
