Lipomas are found rarely in the oral cavity. These tumors are of mesenchymal origin in the human body. Their etiology is still not clear. There are different theories to explain the pathogenesis of this adipose tissue tumor. Lipoma has different histological variants given in the literature. A case of intraoral lipoma occurring on the buccal mucosa in a 42-year-old male patient is reported in this article. Surgical excision was performed, and 1-month follow-up showed excellent healing without any recurrence. Lipomas are benign soft-tissue neoplasm of mature adipose tissue seen as a common entity in the head-and-neck region. Intraoral lipomas are rare tumors that may be noticed only during routine dental examinations. Rarely, they cause pain, resulting in delay to get the treatment done.
