Salivary Gland Tumors

About 90% of salivary gland tumors are benign but most still require surgical removal.  The most common symptom of a salivary gland tumor is a palpable lump just below or in front of the earlobe.  

Cancer of Throat

Cancer of the throat is more common in people who have a smoking history.  However, younger patients without a smoking history can also develop cancer involving the throat.  Common symptoms include a persistent sore throat, hoarseness greater than 3 weeks, difficulty swallowing, bad breath, or unexplained bleeding from the throat.  Any of these symptoms warrant a prompt evaluation.  Treatment usually involves a combination of chemotherapy and radiation therapy.  

Cancer of Oral Cavity

Cancer of the oral cavity includes the lips, cheeks, gums, or tongue.  A non-healing wound, unexplained pain, or a mass in these areas should be promptly evaluated.  Treatment usually involves surgical removal of the tumor with the possibility of post-operative radiation therapy.
