The commonest parotid salivary gland tumour requiring surgery is pleomorphic adenoma, presenting as a pre-auricular mass and the commonest post- surgical complication was facial nerve palsy involving the mandibular branch. A good knowledge of the surgical anatomy of the gland, clinical behaviour and . Salivary gland neoplasms may be benign or malignant, and malignant tumors can be primary or metastatic. Due to the epithelial and the non-epithelial histology of the affected organ, many histological types of parotid tumors are possible, although some are rare. Salivary gland tumors are characterized by diverse histological appearances and variable biological behavior.
Parotid gland tumours account for 80% of all salivary gland neoplasms, 20% of these are malignant, but in daily clinical practice most parotid masses are operated on before obtaining the final histological diagnosis. This clinical setting further complicates the critical point of parotid surgery, which is the management of the facial nerve. Salivary gland tumours or neoplasms are tumours that form in the tissues of salivary salivary glands are classified as major or major salivary glands consist of the parotid, submandibular, and sublingual glands. The minor salivary glands consist of small mucus-secreting glands located throughout the lining of the oral cavity.
Anatomy. There are two parotid glands in the human body. Each parotid gland is located high in the neck just below the ears. A salivary duct by which saliva is secreted (produced and released), runs through the inside of each cheek from each gland. Furthermore, the extratemporal (outside temporal bone) facial nerve and its subsidiaries run through the parotid gland and innervate (supply nerves. Discussion • Parotidectomy is generally indicated for histopathological diagnosis of a parotid mass. Parotid masses are generally benign, the incidence of which is around per , . • Factors determining the extent of surgery include tumor size and degree of local extension.

Removing all of the parotid gland. Surgery to remove all of the parotid gland (total parotidectomy) might be recommended for larger tumors and those that affect the deeper parts of the parotid gland.

This makes the muscles of the face move and if it is damaged during the surgery can lead to a weakness of the face (facial palsy). In most cases the nerve works normally after the surgery.Removal of Parotid Gland.
The parotid gland is a salivary gland that lies immediately in front of the ear. Saliva drains from it through a tube that opens on the inside of the cheek next to the upper back teeth. The parotid gland is most commonly operated on to remove a lump.
Treatment for parotid cancer depends on the type, size and stage of the cancer. Surgery is a common treatment, and may involve removing all or part of the salivary gland or removing lymph nodes in the neck.
