It presents as sessile or occasionally pedunculated painless swelling which can be soft to firm in consistency. Its incidence occurs mostly during third to fifth decade and shows preference for female. Its occurrence corresponds with intraoral areas that are prone to trauma such as the tongue, buccal mucosa and labial mucosa, lip, gingiva.
