What Patients Say About Cancer Treatment at New Hope
What is Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma (AdCC)?
The journey toward cancer remission starts with knowing vital information about your disease.
Adenoid cystic carcinoma is a rare form of cancer that, in most cases, begins in the salivary glands. The salivary glands are found under the tongue and on each side of the jaw. However, adenoid cystic carcinoma can also develop in other parts of the mouth and throat, as well as in different areas of the body. Other sites of origin include the trachea, sweat glands, tear glands, lacrimal glands, skin, breast, and vulva.
What are the Signs of Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma?
The initial symptoms of adenoid cystic carcinoma depend on the location of the tumor. Early lumps of the salivary glands can appear as painless, usually slow-growing masses underneath the typical lining of the mouth or skin of the face. Since there are several salivary glands under the mucosal lining of the mouth, throat, and sinuses, lesions or masses in these locations could be from this type of tumor.
Other symptoms of AdCC may include:
- An abnormal area on the lining of the mouth
- A lump under the tongue, in the bottom of the mouth, or on the palate
- Numbness of the palate, tongue, upper jaw, or face
- Trouble swallowing
- Voice hoarseness
- A bump or nodule underneath the jaw or in front of the ear
- Facial nerve paralysis
How Do Doctors Confirm a Cancer Diagnosis?
Getting an early diagnosis can significantly improve your adenoid cystic carcinoma prognosis. Your doctor may order the following tests to produce accurate findings:
- Medical and physical exam
- Sample tissue removal (biopsy)
- Computed tomography (CT) scan
- Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan
- Positron emission tomography (PET) scan
After receiving an adenoid cystic carcinoma diagnosis, the next most important step is to plan your treatment.
