Mucosal Malignant melanoma of the oral cavity is an extremely rare condition, constituting approximately 1-2% of all the melanomas. It has a poor prognosis. Clinicians should have high index of suspicion for any pigmented lesion in the oral cavity, which should be routinely biopsied, in order to detect this disease early, so that it can be managed appropriately. Here is an unusual case of a lady presenting with a nodule in the breast with cervical lymphadenopathy, who on detailed examination, was found to have an asymptomatic pigmented lesion on the hard palate, the biopsy of which confirmed melanoma, but on further investigation, it was found to have extensive metastasis.
