[Basal cell adenocarcinoma of the sublingual gland].


The cause of a swelling in the floor of the mouth will in most cases be benign. For example, a ranula, sialolithiasis and/or infection. Tumors of the sublingual gland are very rare, but 90% are malignant and therefore malignancy should always be excluded in case of an asymptomatic swelling covered by intact mucosa.
