Mucoceles are benign, mucus-containing cystic lesions of the minor salivary glands. They are not true cysts since most of them lack an epithelial lining. These lesions occur most commonly in the lower lip. They are caused by trauma, orthodontic devices, or biting habits. This report presents a case of a 22-year-old male with a 3-mm mucocele on the lower lip. This lesion was removed using an Er,Cr:YSGG laser. The healing was uneventful and no suture or analgesic was required. The histopathological report confirmed the presurgical diagnosis. No relapse was observed up to one year after surgery.

Keywords: mucocele, Er,Cr:YSGG laser, mucus extravasation cyst
