Salivary Gland Adenoma

Part of the Medical Radiology book series (MEDRAD)


There is very limited published experience using radiotherapy in addition to surgical excision for benign tumor of the salivary glands. Conclusions drawn in regard to local control and/or malignant transformation remain speculative. In the national survey, 73% of the radiation oncologists would not treat salivary gland adenomas.
