Abstract

The purpose of this preliminary retrospective study was to determine the prevalence of fibroma in oral mucosa among patients attending AKTH dental clinic from 2012-2021. Fibroma of the oral mucosa is the most common benign tumor of the oral cavity. It is a reactive hyperplasia of fibrous connective tissue in response to local irritation or trauma. A lesion on any part of the oral mucosa has a broad differential diagnosis ranging from traumatic lesions (mucocele), neurogenic lesions (neurofibromatosis), lipoma, epithelial tumors (squamous papilloma) and inflammatory/reactive hyperplasia of soft tissue (pulp polyp). A total number of 416 patients (201 male and 215 female). The peak incidence of the lesion was in the 3rd decade of life. The lesions occurred in the tongue, lip mucosa, sulcus region and buccal mucosa. This study shows that fibroma is one of the common oral mucosal lesions and it occurred mostly in the 3rd decade of life where the prevalence is higher in female patients
