Schwannoma is a benign tumor that originates from Schwann cells of the peripheral nerve. Occurring as a common tumor in the head and neck region, its intraoral presentation is rare which accounts for only 1%. They are solitary, slow-growing, smooth-surfaced, usually asymptomatic, and encapsulated tumor. This paper comprises two case reports, both of which presented with an intraoral soft tissue swelling which turned out to be schwannoma of buccal mucosa and infratemporal fossa with extension into the oral cavity, respectively. The treatment was done with complete surgical excision. Soft tissue tumors of the oral cavity can present with similar clinical feature, which can make it difficult to distinguish one lesion from the other. Thus, final diagnosis for such lesions can only be rendered based on complete analysis of clinical, radiological, surgical, and histopathological findings.
