Canalicular adenoma (CA) is an uncommon benign neoplasia of minor salivary glands which is clinically difficult to recognize. They are typically located on the upper lip, buccal mucosa, and infrequently found on the palate. It presents as a nodular lesion without a tendency for recurrence. Here, we describe a case of canalicular adenoma presenting as a nodular, painless mass in the right side of oral mucosa in a 70-year-old man. The surgical management of this lesion was performed under local anesthesia, and one year follow‑up was uneventful.
