Abstract

Cheek mass is a common presenting problem in Oral & Maxillofacial OPD. It may be due to many underlying causes like inflammation, cyst or neoplasm. Common cheek swellings sometimes come out as an uncommon lesion on histopathological examination where the provisional diagnosis is challenged. Therefore the final diagnosis of common small cheek swelling is not complete till its therapeutic removal and histopathological examination. We represent a case of young healthy female who reported with swelling of right side buccal mucosa which was finally diagnosed as pleomorphic adenoma based on histopathologic examination.
