Schwannomas are benign tumors of Schwann cells which are commonly seen at head, neck regions, and extremities. Schwannomas at rare locations such as breast and parotid are very uncommon. Here, we present two case reports of breast schwannoma and parotid schwannoma. In first case, 24-year-old female presented with left breast lump which was clinically diagnosed as fibroadenoma and lumpectomy was done. In second case, 50-year-old female presented with left parotid swelling associated with mild pain. Pleomorphic adenoma was suspected clinically and lesion was excised. Histologically, both cases showed hypocellular and hypercellular areas suggestive of schwannoma. Further, the diagnosis was confirmed with S-100 immunohistochemistry marker. Thus, schwannoma should be considered as one of the differential diagnosis for spindle cell lesion in breast and parotid swelling.
