There is mild generalised alveolar bone loss due to periodontal disease.

The apices of the LR8 and LL8 are touching the inferior dental canal.

There is a large, moderately well-defined unilocular radiolucency 7 x 13 x 9 mm replacing the buccal cortical plate, marrow space and alveolar ridge crest. The lesion extends from the LR3 root mesial surface to the LL2 root mesial surface. There are small multiple small radiopaque spicules in the centre of the lesion. The LR3 and LL2 apical periodical ligament spaces are normal (image 1).

Differential diagnosis based on radiological interpretation is a benign calcifying epithelial odontogenic tumour or a metastatic breast tumour. This necessitates an urgent referral to oral surgery for further investigation and biopsy to confirm diagnosis.
