Head-and-neck squamous cell carcinomas are tumors with propensity mostly for locoregional spread. The most frequent sites of metastasis include lung, bone, liver, adrenal, heart, and kidney. Distant metastasis to axillary lymph nodes from buccal mucosa cancer is extremely rare. To the authors' knowledge, this is the first case reported where a gentleman who was treated for carcinoma right buccal mucosa developed left axillary lymph node metastasis at 6th year of follow-up.
