Leiomyomas are benign smooth muscle tumors, which occur most commonly, in the uterine myometrium, gastrointestinal tract, skin, and lower extremities of women. Only 1% of leiomyomas occur in the head-and-neck region. A thorough differential diagnosis is required before undertaking surgical excision of a lesion as it mimics fibromas, lipomas, and sometimes, leiomyosarcomas. We report a case of a 40-year-old male with an unusually large leiomyoma on the right buccal mucosa, which was present for 4 years. A complete surgical excision of the lesion was done. There was no recurrence of the lesion seen anywhere in the oral cavity.
