What are the salivary gland tumors?
Adenoid cystic carcinoma (cylindroma)
Where are tumors of the minor salivary gland more common?
Where may salivary gland tumors arise?
Major or minor salivary glands
Where are minor salivary gland tumors most often located?
The junction of the hard and soft palate
Which tumor makes up 90% of all salivary gland tumors?
Pleomorphic adenoma (benign mixed tumor)
What is a pleomorphic adenoma (benign mixed tumor)?
A benign salivary gland tumor
Where is the most common extraoral location of the pleomorphic adenoma?
Where is the most common intraoral location of the pleomorphic adenoma?
Which lesions have been known to undergo malignant transformation?
What does the pleomorphic adenoma look like clinically and what’s the treatment?
Slowly enlarging, nonulcerated, painless, dome shaped mass
Treatment is surgical excision and recurrence is rare
What is a monomorphic adenoma (warthin tumor)?
A benign encapsulated salivary gland tumor that has lymphoid tissue and a uniform pattern of epithelial cells
Where and in who does the monomorphic adenoma most occur?
In females and on the upper lip and buccal mucosa (rarely intraorally)
Treatment of the monomorphic adenoma
What is a mucoepidermal carcinoma?
A malignant salivary gland tumor
Where are major mucoepidermal carcinomas most often found majorly and minorly?
Major - parotid gland
What does a mucoepidermoid carcinoma look like clinically?
Slow enlarging masses
Who does the mucoepidermoid carcinoma occur in?
Usually adult females but most common malignant salivary gland tumor in children
Treatment of mucoepidermoid carcinoma
What is an adenoid cystic carcinoma (cylindroma)?
A slow growing malignant tumor of either major or minor salivary gland tissue that may be ulcerated and painful
Most common site of the adenoid cystic carcinoma?
Adenoid cystic carcinoma resembles what microscopically?
Treatment of adenoid cystic carcinoma
What are the odontogenic tumors?
Epithelial odontogenic tumors
Mesenchymal odontogenic tumors
Mixed odontogenic tumors
Peripheral odontogenic tumors
What are odontogenic tumors?
Derived from tooth forming structured. May be composed of epithelium, mesenchyme, or both.
