A 20-YEAR-OLD MAN presented with a 2-year history of a slow-growing lesion on his left upper lip. The lesion had been painless until 1 week before he was referred to our clinic. On physical examination, a tender, mobile mass, measuring 2 cm in diameter, was observed partially blocking the right nostril and causing asymmetry of the right ala nasi. The findings of the rest of the head and neck examination were unremarkable. A computed tomographic scan was obtained (Figure 1 and Figure 2), and the lesion was surgically excised.
