Salivary Gland Tumors
The major and minor salivary glands give rise to a variety of both benign and malignant lesions. These disease entities are relatively rare, histologically diverse, and may involve several anatomically distinct sites. The goal of this chapter is to provide an overview of their clinical presentation and workup and summarize possible options in management.
