What Patients Say About Cancer Treatment at New Hope

Alternative Cancer Treatment Testimonial from Cindy

What is Mucoepidermoid Carcinoma?

Living a full, healthy, and happy life — not just surviving — starts with knowing vital information about your disease and the holistic cancer treatments available to you.

Mucoepidermoid carcinoma (MEC) is the most common form of salivary gland cancer in adults and the most prevalent malignancy affecting the minor and major salivary glands. A MEC tumor averages three centimeters and appears as a soft, well-circumscribed gray-white to pink-tan endobronchial lump with a cystic cut surface under a microscope. Mucoepidermoid carcinoma can invade the lymph nodes via metastasis or direct extension. Furthermore, it can develop in other organs, including the lacrimal sac, bronchi, and thyroid gland.

What are the Signs of Mucoepidermoid Carcinoma?

The overall goal of our cancer care team is to restore a patient’s condition before MEC emerged in the body. Completing that goal involves reversing the symptoms of mucoepidermoid carcinoma, which often includes the following:

  • A lump or mass in the face, mouth, or neck
  • Weakness, numbness, or pain in the face
  • Persistent coughing and wheezing
  • Difficulty swallowing and breathing

What Caused Your Salivary Gland to Develop Cancer?

Although mucoepidermoid carcinoma is the most common type of salivary gland cancer in adult men and women, salivary gland cancer itself is uncommon and accounts for only 1 percent of malignant diseases in the United States. Therefore, because of its rarity and unknown origin, MEC currently has no known causes. The one reported risk factor is that many cases of MEC arise in patients between the ages of 20 to 40.

The risk factors for salivary gland cancer in general, however, typically include:

How Do Doctors Diagnose MEC?

These diagnostic procedures help evaluate a suspicious-looking mass, determine its extent, and produce correct findings that may improve a mucoepidermoid carcinoma prognosis:

  • Medical history and physical exam
  • Positron emission tomography (PET) scan
  • Computerized axial tomography (CAT) scan
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan
  • Fine-needle aspiration biopsy

If you received a mucoepidermoid carcinoma diagnosis from your doctor, the next critical step is to plan your cancer treatment.
