Benign salivary gland tumors, which manifest themselves as swelling-mass in the front of the ear, under the earlobe, under the jaw, and sometimes in the mouth, throat, and pharynx, usually grow slowly. However, tumors to develop on the salivary gland, which, with the saliva it produces, moisturizes the mouth and throat and supports defense against germs, in addition to helping digestion, can become malignant if left untreated.

Tumors that are found to be malignant spread out and damage the surrounding tissues over time, and can cause serious problems such as facial paralysis and severe pain. In the treatment of benign salivary gland tumors, surgical procedures are applied and no additional treatment is required afterward. Surgery is also the primary treatment method for malignant tumors. In the treatment of malignant tumors, radiotherapy and chemotherapy may be required in addition to surgery.
