Lipoma is a benign tumor of adipose tissue and one of the most common benign neoplasms of the body. One type of soft-tissue lesions of the oral cavity is lipoma. However, its occurrence in the oral cavity is very rare. It commonly occurs in the trunk and extremities. Lipoma accounts for only 1-4% of the intraoral soft tissue lesions. The intraoral site of occurence includes buccal mucosa, floor of the mouth and tongue. Here, we present a case of an intraoral lipoma in a 30-year-old young male patient. After 3 years follow-up, patients showed no signs of recurrence.
