In oral cavity, lipoma presents painless, asymptomatic , slow growing, but sometimes it grows to larger size causing deformities, mastication and speech difficulties. While lipoma in commonly affects female patients (68-73%), oral lipoma appears more frequently in male patients. The majority of oral lipoma is seen after the age of forty (uncommon in children).
