Gingival squamous cell carcinoma (GSCC) is a relatively rare malignant neoplasm of the oral cavity. It represents less than 4-6.3% of diagnosed intraoral carcinomas. GSCC may cause odontogenic symptoms such as mobility and pain of teeth mimicking inflammatory conditions such as periodontitis. Early diagnosis and prompt management of GSCC is of paramount importance as the prognosis of gingival squamous cell carcinoma is mainly dependent on these factors. Further, as, GSCCs spread rapidly to involve the underlying bone, the role of dentists in early detection of gingival squamous cell carcinoma cannot be undermined. The present report describes a rare case of GSCC in a 31 year old male. The detailed recording of the case history and clinical examination, radiographic, and laboratory investigations, along with review of similar conditions led to the diagnosis, and treatment was initiated.
