Schwannomas are well characterized uncommon neural neoplasms which may rarely present with variation in clinical manifestation. Oral Schwannomas clinically simulate other lesions like traumatic fibroma, pyogenic granuloma, mucocele and salivary gland lesions. The diagnosis of schwannoma is typically made at the time of surgery following biopsy and surgical resection is the mainstay of treatment with no chances of recurrence as they are well encapsulated. We present a case of schwannoma of lower lip occurring in a 21-year-old female patient.
