What Is Salivary Gland Cancer?

Knowing vital information about your disease is the first step toward cancer remission.

Cancer cells can arise anywhere in your body — even in parts you never consider or think about. Take the salivary glands, for example. They produce a liquid substance called saliva or spit, which provides lubrication for chewing and swallowing, and overall keeps the mouth and throat moist. This fluid contains enzymes that play a significant role in breaking down food. Saliva also helps to prevent infections in your mouth and throat.

You have hundreds of salivary glands in and around your mouth. Salivary gland cancer occurs when abnormal cells in these glands grow out of control.

Where Exactly Does This Cancer Develop?

Major and minor are the two main types of salivary glands. Most salivary gland cancers start in the major glands found on each side of the face.

The major salivary gland has three sets:

  • Parotid glands. These are the largest salivary glands in your mouth. About 70 percent of salivary gland tumors occur here. In most cases, they are benign (noncancerous).
  • Submandibular glands. These glands are found below the jaw. About 15 percent of salivary gland tumors develop here, and nearly all of them are malignant (cancerous).
  • Sublingual glands. These glands are under the tongue. While tumor occurrence in this area is rare, it is possible.

As for cancers of the minor salivary glands, they often begin in the roof of the mouth.

Addressing the Signs of Salivary Gland Cancer

One of our ultimate goals here at New Hope Unlimited is to reduce or reverse the following symptoms of salivary gland cancer:

  • A lump in your mouth or side of the face
  • Pain in your mouth, jaw, cheek, ear, or neck
  • Facial numbness
  • Swallowing problems
  • Difficulty opening your mouth widely
  • Fluid draining from your ear

What Caused Your Cancer?

Currently, what causes salivary gland cancer is unclear. However, the following factors may increase your risk of developing the disease:

  • Getting older
  • Exposure to radiation therapy
  • Certain work environments, including:
    • Plumbing
    • Rubber manufacturing
    • Asbestos mining

Tests for Salivary Gland Cancer

Because receiving an early and accurate diagnosis improves your salivary gland cancer prognosis and life expectancy, your doctor might order these tests to find a salivary gland tumor:

  • Complete physical exam
  • Computerized tomography (CT)
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
  • Fine-needle aspiration biopsy
