Neoplastic Disorders

Most salivary gland neoplasms arise in the parotid gland, and most are benign. Approximately 80% of parotid gland tumors are benign, with pleomorphic adenoma (mixed tumor) being the most common in adults. Hemangiomas are the most common benign tumor in children, but malignancy in children is more likely than in adults when a solid mass is found in the salivary gland. Other benign tumors include Warthin's tumors (papillary cystadenoma lymphomatosum) and oncocytomas. The most common malignancy in adults and children is mucoepidermoid carcinoma. Other malignancies include adenoid cystic carcinoma, malignant mixed tumor, and squamous cell carcinoma. Treatment of salivary gland neoplasms is surgical excision.
