A diverse category of malignancies called oral squamous cell carcinomas (OSCCs) develops from the mucosal lining of the oral cavity. The bulk of these malignancies are linked to risky lifestyle behaviors such as smoking, binge drinking, and betel nut chewing. The majority of malignant epithelial tumors of the head and neck are OSCCs, which make up 80%–90% of all malignant tumors of the oral cavity. The fifth to eighth decade of life is when the incidence rate is highest. Less than 40-year-old age groups are an uncommon exception to the OSCC rule. Although it occasionally varies on the population and the habits of the people, the border of the tongue is the most common place for OSCC, followed by the lower lip, the floor of the mouth, the ventral tongue, and the alveolar mucosa/gingiva. There have been noticeably better results on recent improvements in diagnostic and therapy planning. Although the standard of care for OSCC remains surgery, adjuvant radiation, and chemotherapy, advancements in these therapeutic modalities have allowed for better prognoses and the saving of many lives. In the present case report, we evaluated an OSCC in a 53-year-old female patient.
