Cancer is a non-communicable disease that has a high death rate. The medical community’s focus on cancer treatment options continues to this day. Chemotherapy, percutaneous ablation, surgical treatment, and resection are all treatment approaches that are still being developed. Apart from the benefits of this strategy, the researcher searched electronic databases for various research journal articles. Sciencedirect, CINAHL, Pub Med, Elsevier (SCOPUS), and Pro-Quest were among the electronic databases used. Moringa oleifera, Anti-Cancer, and Oral Cancer are the keywords utilized. Researchers independently scanned the relevancy of all references by title and abstract, focusing on the recent ten years. The journals were then categorized based on inclusion and exclusion criteria, such as IC1= English-language journals, IC2 = articles published between 2012 and 2022, IC3 = quantitative research types, and IC4 = non-duplicate journals from Sciencedirect, CINAHL, Pub Med, Elsevier (SCOPUS), and Pro Quest. Following the adjustments based on IC1-IC4, Moringa oleifera contains glucosinolates, bioactive -4-(-L-rhamnosyloxy) benzyl isothiocyanate, -sitosterol-3-O-D-glucopyranoside, nizimicin, and ITC type MIC-1, which can prevent cancer cell expansion and proliferation, slow carcinogenesis, to cause apoptosis, and inhibit tumor angiogenesis. A review of the literature that has been found shows Moringa oleifera can be used to cure cancer, especially oral cancer.
