ABSTRACT
Oral metastasis of breast cancer is less common than metastasis to other sites like the lung and liver. Breast cancer can metastasize to the oral cavity, with presentation like a benign oral lesion. We present an interesting case of breast cancer involving the gingiva with sparing of the underlying bone.
