Schwannoma of the tongue is a relatively rare tumor of the head and neck. We report a case of schwannoma of tongue in a young male who presented with a slowly progressive painless mass over the left anterolateral border of tongue without any impairment of tongue movement. Fine needle aspiration cytology of this lesion was suggestive of a benign nerve sheath tumor. Complete excision of the mass through an intraoral approach with primary closure was done. Definitive histopathological examination confirmed the diagnosis of schwannoma.
