Histologic analysis of squamous cell carcinoma of the lower alveolus shows 2 basic patterns of tumor spread in relation to the mandible: an infiltrative one and an expansive one. While the tumor invades the mandible by destroying the bone or through cortical defects of some spaces in the infiltrative form, the tumor does this only by eroding the bone in the expansive form, in which the degree of bone resorption seems to be proportional to tumor advancement. A comparison between radiologic and… CONTINUE READING
