Maxillary sinus squamous cell carcinoma is a rare aggressive tumor, usually diagnosed at a progressive stage, and most patients present with extreme poor prognosis and poor survival rates. In this article, we report a case of a patient who presented with pain and swelling in the left maxillary region. The symptoms of maxillary sinus carcinoma can be non-specific, leading to late diagnosis. It is pertinent for the maxillofacial physician to be aware of these sinus pathologies and arrive at an early diagnosis to improve the survival rate.
