Digvijay Singh Tanwar and Ravi Verma*
Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) is the most common malignant tumour of the oral cavity and is responsible for 3% of all cancer deaths. Clinical presentation is variable. Often their behaviour is aggressive and the diagnosis is often made at a late stage. The treatment of intraoral squamous cell carcinoma is guided by the clinical stage of the disease and consists of wide surgical excision, radiation therapy, or a combination of surgery and radiation therapy. Here we treated a 69-year-old male patient with a well-differentiated SCC of the left lower alveolus with a Salvage Left Composite Resection.
