Intraoral lipomas are a rare entity and they usually cause no discomfort. Therefore, patients are unable to notice them or tend to neglect them as they are painless in nature. This makes it mandatory for oral physicians to perform a meticulous examination of the oral cavity and accurately diagnose intraoral lipomas for early management. Lipomas are benign, slow-growing tumors of mesenchymal origin composed of fat. Intraorally, buccal mucosa, lip, and tongue are the common sites of occurrence as they have ample fat tissue but, the hard palate is a rare site. They usually occur in older individuals with no gender predilection. This case report describes a case of a 22-year-old female with a lipoma on the hard palate which was surgically excised and reported no recurrence after 1 year of follow-up.
