Distant metastasis from primary breast cancer to oral cavity is a very rare entry. Many case reports of lytic bony metastasis have been reported in literature but involvement of only soft tissue of oral cavity is very rare. It may be a diagnostic challenge to clinician if it is the isolated site of distant metastasis. We report a very rare case of breast cancer metastases to oral cavity soft tissue.
