Salivary gland cancer often develops without noticeable symptoms for a long time. However, you should pay attention to lumps and tumors that appear in the neck, cheek, ear, jaw or mouth, and consult a doctor immediately. He told about this fact Anton Ivanovchief physician of the Mamma clinic, ophthalmologist, oncologist and oncologist.

Other signs of this type of cancer include discomfort when chewing, swallowing and trying to open the mouth wide, stiffness of the facial muscles, swelling and a feeling of numbness in the face.

However, the exact reasons why salivary gland cancer occurs have not yet been established by specialists. At the same time, a number of factors have been identified that can increase the risk of developing this type of cancer. Among them: smoking and a diet with large amounts of animal fats and refined products, work in hazardous industries, chronic inflammation that was caused by various injuries and oncogenic viruses, alcohol consumption, age (the older the person, the higher the risks), gender of the person (women get this type of cancer less often) and others, the specialist shared.

According to Anton Ivanov, salivary gland cancer is a rare type of oncology, which accounts for less than 5% of all cases of malignant tumors. The prognosis for patients with this disease depends on the stage of the disease, the type of malignancy, the time of initiation of treatment and the effectiveness of the procedures performed.

“Therefore, if any suspicious sensations or symptoms appear, it is always better to play it safe and, without delay, seek advice from a doctor,” concluded Ivanov.
