Abstract:
A 77-year-old female was referred by her general dental practitioner (GDP) to the accident and emergency (A and E) department of Dublin Dental University Hospital (DDUH). The patient’s dentist had noted an incidental finding of a swelling ‘the size of an apple’ in the patient’s floor of mouth. The patient reported that the swelling had been present and unchanged for around three years. The patient presented with no dyspnoea, dysphagia, or pain, and seemed unconcerned by the swelling. The patient’s family did report a slight change in speech over recent years – she had developed a slight lisp. There was no history of previous trauma or surgery to the region.
