Lipoma is a common tumor of the soft tissues. Its location on the oral mucosa is infrequent, representing 1 to 5% of all benign oral tumors although it is the most frequently occurring mesenchymal tumor of the trunk and proximal portions of extremities. Lipoma of the oral cavity is seen mainly on the buccal mucosa, tongue, and floor of the mouth. The clinical presentation is typically as an asymptomatic yellowish mass. The overlying epithelium generally remains intact. The purpose of the present case report is to discuss a lipoma on the left buccal mucosa of an elderly male with a brief review of literature.
