Salivary gland tumour: Causes, symptoms, diagnosis and treatment
Salivary gland tumours are abnormal cells that grow, either in the salivary gland itself or in the ducts that drain them. Salivary glands are located around the mouth.

Salivary gland tumours are a rare condition that are usually benign, slow growing and with a good prognosis.
