  • classification
  • Due to the diverse nature of salivary gland tumours, many different terms and classification systems have been used. (wikipedia.org)
  • The International Classification of Diseases for Oncology (ICD-O) is a domain-specific extension of the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems for tumor diseases. (wikipedia.org)
  • cysts
  • RESULTS: Among the 130 patients, 53.8% of lesions were benign (n = 70), 23.8% were malignant (n = 31), 14.6% were vascular malformations (n = 19), 6.15% were sialadenitis (n = 8), and 1.65% were cysts (n = 2). (rare-cancer.org)
  • facial
  • Findings that suggest a malignant salivary gland tumour include rapid growth, facial weakness (due to facial nerve compression), pain, skin ulceration, fixation of the mastoid tip and parasthesias. (wikipedia.org)
  • PURPOSE: Masses in the accessory parotid gland (APG) region are clinically rare and their management can lead to conflicts between the need for tumor resection and facial cosmesis. (rare-cancer.org)
  • More important, this minimally invasive procedure reduces the risk of global facial nerve paralysis because only the branches that are near the tumor are dissected. (stanford.edu)
  • The investigators propose less extensive surgery which should be thorough enough to prevent tumor recurrence while keeping the facial nerve out of risk. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Surgery for pleomorphic adenoma is a compromise between radicality and facial nerve morbidity. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • A smaller, more confined tumor will be easier to remove and therefore be less likely to cause damage to the facial nerve located nearby. (azcentral.com)
  • Even if benign, these tumors should be removed as they will NOT go away on their own and will continue to increase in size over time causing facial disfigurement. (fauquierent.net)
  • For example signs of facial nerve damage (e.g facial palsy) are associated with malignant parotid tumours. (wikipedia.org)
  • Facial pain, and paraesthesia are also very often associated with a malignant tumours. (wikipedia.org)
  • glandular
  • The tumor extends through normal glandular parenchyma in the form of finger-like pseudopodia, but this is not a sign of malignant transformation. (wikipedia.org)
  • plural adenomas or adenomata /ˌædɪˈnoʊmɪtə/) is a benign tumor of epithelial tissue with glandular origin, glandular characteristics, or both. (wikipedia.org)
  • Some adenomas grow from epithelial tissue in nonglandular areas but express glandular tissue structure (as can happen in familial polyposis coli). (wikipedia.org)
  • The tumor shows a dual or biphasic appearance, with glandular or cystic spaces showing inner luminal secretory cells with abundant granular, eosinophilic cytoplasm subtended by basal, myoepithelial cells at the periphery, adjacent to the basement membrane. (wikipedia.org)
  • painless
  • The tumor is usually solitary and presents as a slow growing, painless, firm single nodular mass. (wikipedia.org)
  • The tumor is slow growing, painless, and usually appears in the tail of the parotid gland near the angle of the mandible. (wikipedia.org)
  • Canalicular adenoma is characterized as a slow growing, painless swelling, whose diameter can be up to 2 cm. (wikipedia.org)
  • LAHORE
  • Materials and Methods: This was a 4 year descriptive cross - sectional study (from 1st July 2008 - 30th June 2012) on 259 salivary gland tumours reported at the Department of Pathology, King Edward Medical University, Lahore. (thefreelibrary.com)
  • complications
  • But even while benign, they have the potential to cause serious health complications by compressing other structures (mass effect) and by producing large amounts of hormones in an unregulated, non-feedback-dependent manner (causing paraneoplastic syndromes). (wikipedia.org)
