Abstract

Lipomas are among the most common benign tumors affecting the human body. However, they are relatively uncommon in the oral cavity. Oral lipomas are likely to affect cheek, tongue, lips, gingiva and rarely the floor of the mouth. We report a case of huge lipoma of the floor of the mouth, associated with difficulty in speech and mastication in a 72-year-old male. The tumor was completely excised and sent for histopathological examination, which confirmed the tumor to be a simple classical lipoma.
