In oral cavity Pregnancy tumour is an exophytic tissue. It occurs after three months of pregnancy because of vascular effects of hormones during pregnancy. Clinically it appears as sessile or pedunculated exophytic mass, having bleeding tendency. It occurs in response to numerous factors like traumatic injury, low grade irritation, or hormonal changes. For its treatment various modalities are used like flash lamp pulsed dye laser, cryosurgery, Nd: YAG laser, intralesional injection of ethanol, corticosteroids, and sodium tetradecyl sulfate sclerotherapy, but still surgical excision is the treatment of preference.
