Salivary gland tumors are relatively uncommon tumors, accounting approximately 3-10% of head and neck neoplasm. Most of them are benign and pleomorphic adenoma is the commonest among them that involves both major (90%) and minor (10%) salivary glands. The most predominant site of pleomorphic adenoma is palate; however, it may occur in any part of oral cavity like lip, floor of mouth, tongue, tonsil, pharynx, retromolar area and nasal cavity. Mucosa of cheek (4%) is an extremely rare site. A case of 25 years young male is reported here possessing pleomorphic adenoma of buccal minor salivary gland that was presented to us with a mobile swelling over right cheek that found to be pleomorphic adenoma of buccal minor salivary gland after histopathological examination. Surgical excision was done by intra oral approach with adequate margins. Patient had an uneventful postoperative course and discharged same day on oral antibiotics.
