Lip lesions are the most common oral mucosal lesions. Mucocele is the second most common benign soft tissue masses of the lips only next to infectious etiology. Tumors of the minor salivary glands of the lip were a rare diagnosis made clinically. Excision and histopathological examination must be done for all the lip lumps as this remains the gold standard for the diagnosis. In this article, we discuss three lip lumps which were clinically suspected as mucocoele turned out to be an unexpected diagnosis which only became clear following excision and histological examination.
