Hemangiomas are benign tumors of the blood vessel origin. They appear as raised or flat reddish-blue lesions and are generally solitary, affecting women in younger age groups. The tumor may be slowly progressive, involving extensive portions of the superficial and deep blood vessels, and affect function, depending on the location. They are mostly common in the head and neck region but rarely in the oral cavity. This case report presents a case of capillary hemangioma in the labial mucosa of a female patient, which was diagnosed by histopathology after laser excision.
