This article addresses the clinical presentation, diagnosis, histological features, and treatment of two cases of fibroma.


Fibromas are proliferative fibrous lesions of the gingiva and oral mucosa that may cause esthetic and functional problems. Fibrous hyperplasia and fibroepithelial hyperplasia are histological variants of these nonneoplastic lesions.

Case description

Case 1 demonstrated an overgrowth in the lower back tooth region. Case 2 was present at the corner of the lip mucosa. Both the growths were pale in color, sessile, painless, and firm in consistency. Lesions caused discomfort during chewing of food. Thus, both the lesions were excised using diode laser in continuous mode and sent for histopathological assessment.


These lesions are a result of trauma/chronic irritation and arise from cells of oral mucous membrane or periosteum.

Clinical significance

The cases demonstrate the need for proper diagnosis, role of biopsy, and histologic evaluation in the management of these lesions.
