Granular cell tumor presents as small, painless nodule in the dermis, subcutis, or mucosal surfaces. Intraoral sites (tongue, oral mucosa, hard palate) are frequently involved. Less common sites include deep soft tissues and visceral organs (upper aerodigestive tract, vulva, uterus, breast, salivary glands, pancreas, urinary bladder, and brain).
