In this study, we aimed to present a huge mandibular tumor. In our study, we presented a 29-year-old patient with mandibular tumor. Osteosarcoma is the most common malignant tumor of bone that occurs mostly in the young age group. It is most common in the second decade. The most important areas of bone involvement are the metaphysis of the load-bearing joints. Osteosarcoma is rarely seen in the head and neck region. The most affected area in the head and neck region is the mandible. No matter how large jaw tumors are, they can be operated on with an experienced surgeon and adequate repair.
