Abstract

In the oral cavity, several growths may occur, while some of these growths may be malignant, most of them tend to be benign. Even the benign lesions can be a big problem. Many are locally invasive and inclined to recur and their physical presence in the mouth can lead to traumatic occlusion and entrapment of debris, predisposing to infection. It is therefore of great importance that these growths be treated carefully with the elimination of the causative factors. The aim of this article is to present two such cases where benign pyogenic growths were misdiagnosed as malignant growth causing unnecessary stress and mental trauma to the patient.
