Cystadenoma is an uncommon, benign cystic epithelial neoplasm containing epithelium-lined papillary projections into the cystic spaces. A 45-year-old female presented with a swelling on the left side of the roof of her mouth. Clinically, the lesion was nontender, soft, and fluctuant. A fine-needle aspiration biopsy was suggestive of a minor salivary gland neoplasm. An excision biopsy showed characteristic features of cystadenoma. This paper highlights its cytological and histopathological features with differential diagnosis. Cystadenoma of the palate is rare with very few earlier reports.
