About Ameloblastic Carcinoma

Ameloblastic carcinoma is a rare malignant (cancerous) tumor that normally begins in the bones of the jaw. It is classified as an odontogenic tumor, meaning that it arises from the tissue that eventually forms the teeth. Symptoms may include progressive pain and swelling of the jaw. Ameloblastic carcinoma may spread (metastasize) to affect other organs of the body.

Carcinoma refers to cancer that arises in the skin or tissues that line the inside or cover the outside of internal organs (epithelium). The term "cancer" refers to a group of diseases characterized by abnormal, uncontrolled cellular growth that invades surrounding tissues and may spread (metastasize) to distant bodily tissues or organs via the bloodstream, the lymphatic system, or other means. Different forms of cancer, including odontogenic tumors, are classified based upon the cell type involved, the specific nature of the malignancy, and the disease's clinical course.
