Mutual Funds vs Smallcase

Hello, I have been exploring small cases for investing:
I see that the choices are more in small cases compared to Mutual funds.
But, there are additional charges such as brokerage charges for adjusting small cases & short-term capital gains if a stock is removed soon.
I believe these charges are more compared to Mutual Fund.

Can someone please throw some light on my understanding (or) am I missing something

Thanks in advance

Typically stocks in smallcase is for long term . Which means charges is minimal giving us choice to pick stocks

Mutual fund you have direct but check exit load , lock in , expense ratio.
