At the same time, an infiltrate occurs, which tends to spread, due to which the lip increases in size. Her mobility is limited. The tumor eventually metastasizes to the bone of the lower jaw. Its cells are transferred by the lymph to the submental and submandibular lymph nodes. They increase, become inactive. The progression of the process leads to the emergence of new malignant foci in the lymph nodes of various parts of the patient’s body.
