Pleomorphic Adenoma (PA) is a benign tumor of the salivary glands that can affect both sexes and usually presents as a slow-growing, painless solitary nodule. We report a case of a large pleomorphic adenoma in the upper lip in a 42-year-old man with a 6-month evolution, which due to its size could be mistaken for a malignant lesion. Biopsy is essential to close the diagnosis in these cases and to exclude the hypothesis of a malignant lesion; the treatment was performed with surgical excision.
