Abstract: Oral presentation of lymphoma is rare but highlights the need for dentists in primary care to consider it for inclusion when determining differential diagnoses for patients who present with oral lesions. Oral lymphoma manifests in both intra- and extra-osseous sites within the oral cavity with a variety of clinical appearances which may mimic benign or innocuous processes. There may be non-specific signs which may be misleading to the clinician or present mimicking other oral malignancies, such as a non-healing ulcer, rapidly growing swelling with sudden onset or dental pathological processes. This case series highlights the varied presentations of oral lymphoma and the role of general dental practitioners in the early diagnosis, timely referral and management of these patients.

Clinical relevance: This article highlights the need for primary care clinicians to consider oral lymphoma in patients who present in the general dental setting with oral lesions.
