• Histologically
  • Histologically, salivary gland tumors represent the most heterogenous group of tumors of any tissue in the body. (cigna.com)
  • 3 , 4 , 6 - 9 These neoplasms are histologically composed of monotonous sheets of oncocytes, epithelial cells named by Hamperl in 1931, which are characterized by an intensely eosinophilic and granular cytoplasm. (ajnr.org)
  • mucoepidermoid
  • Except for mucoepidermoid and adenoid cystic carcinomas, which occurred equally among all races, other subtypes had significantly lower incidence among Blacks and Asians/Pacific Islanders than among Whites. (aacrjournals.org)
  • cancer
  • Therefore, with the paucity of population-based studies of M-SGC, we used data from the National Cancer Institute's Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results (SEER) Program to provide new information on M-SGC incidence in the United States according to histologic subtype. (aacrjournals.org)
  • For salivary gland cancer, an endoscope is inserted into the mouth to look at the mouth, throat, and larynx. (wikipedia.org)

  • diagnostic
  • There are many diagnostic methods that can be used to determine the type of salivary gland tumour and if it is benign or malignant. (wikipedia.org)
  • Many of the conditions that involve the parotid glands evolve insidiously, and diagnostic delay is a common problem. (pulsetoday.co.uk)
  • It is also helpful to consider the presenting symptoms in terms of either single or multi-gland involvement, and the type of swelling present (recurrent swelling, diffuse swelling or a well-defined lump - see table 1), as this information helps differentiation between the five diagnostic categories of disease. (pulsetoday.co.uk)
  • Diagnostic imaging techniques for salivary gland tumors include ultrasound, computer tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). (wikipedia.org)
  • stones
  • First, stones can now be reliably retrieved by minimally invasive techniques, preserving gland function and avoiding traditional sialoadenectomy, although the service is restricted to a few specialised centres. (pulsetoday.co.uk)
  • patients
  • The aim of the study was to correlate blood glucose level (BGL) and salivary glucose level (SGL) in DM patients. (jomfp.in)
