Oral cancer is the sixth most prevalent cancer worldwide, and it is the third most prevalent in Southeast Asia. Oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) of the upper alveolus is rare. There is a high frequency of gingival cancer, and it is frequently discovered in an advanced stage. It may be important to better patient education and early medical consultation because gingival cancer's clinical presentation is extremely variable. There are few English-language data have been published on their biological behaviour. Adequate surgical resection and adjuvant treatment, in the first instance, offer the best chance of disease control. Upper jaw cancer is more aggressive usually. The following is a case report on SCC of the upper alveolus in a seventy five-year-old female who developed a non-healing ulcer after tooth extraction.
