Background: Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is one of the most common urological malignancies. Case Report: A 62-year-old male patient was admitted to our clinic due to painful swelling on the right side of his face. On the panoramic radiograph, a well defined, unilocular, approximately 1.9×1.5 cm sized radiolucent area was observed. It was decided to enucleate the lesion, which was thought to be ‘radicular cyst’ radiographically. While performing incision and flap operations, bleeding continued in an abnormal amount. Surgical material was diagnosed a RCC metastasis. Conclusion: The possibility of a metastatic tumor in cases with excessive bleeding during surgery should be kept in mind.
