The verdict....

Pyogenic Granuloma

To review, a pyogenic granuloma is a tumor of soft tissue and considered one of the "3 P's" along with peripheral giant cell granuloma and peripheral ossifying fibroma.

Pyogenic granuloma represents exuberant tissue responding to local irritation or trauma. They are either smooth or lobulated and bleed quite easily. 75% of cases occur on the gingiva. Most common area is the maxillary anterior but it can occur in other areas. Females, children, and young adults show a slight prediliction for pyogenic granuloma, and especially pregnant females.
