Mucocele (Mucus Retention Cyst) On Lower Lip: A Case Study

Dr Manjeet Singh

Mucocele is a common salivary gland disorder that can appear in the lacrimal sac, paranasal sinuses, oral cavity, appendix or gall bladder. These lesions occur due to mucous accumulation resulting from the alteration of minor salivary glands. Lower lip is the most common site of occurrence of these lesions in the oral cavity and most probable cause is trauma or habit of lip biting. Diagnosis is mainly clinical due to its pathognomonic presentation. I am reporting a case of mucocele on a lower lip in a 25 years old male patient treated by conventional surgical excision of the lesion.
