Abstract

Metastatic lesions of the oral cavity are extremely rare, accounting for approximately 1% of all malignant oral tumors. Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is the third most frequent neoplasm to metastasize to the head and neck region preceded only by breast and lung cancer. The nose and paranasal sinuses are most commonly affected followed by the oral cavity. Within the oral cavity, the tongue is a frequent target for RCC metastasis.We report the case of a 66-year-old Malay man presenting with a lesion in oral cavity which has grown substantially over several months without any urological complaint except a history of left nephrectomy for unsure pathology about 17. years ago.
