Nodular hidradenoma is an uncommon benign adnexal tumor arising from the eccrine sweat glands. It occurs as a slow growing, nodular, solid or cystic, protruding cutaneous mass, which may exhibit serous discharge or ulceration. The lesions are commonly seen in women on head, neck, and limbs. This is a case report of an 85-year-old lady who presented with a slowly progressive nodular protruding mass over the chin. Nodular hidradenoma is an uncommon benign tumor of sweat glands. The clinician and the pathologist should have a strong index of suspicion to detect the lesion. Complete surgical excision is warranted with a close follow-up.
