The doctor will analyze your symptoms and medical history, perform a physical examination, and request various tests, including:
- Tissue biopsy.
- X-ray of the salivary glands.
- Computed tomography.
The treatment will be established based on the size of the tumors, severity, and your general health, but usually includes surgery to remove the tumor, either by removing part or all of the parotid gland.
If the tumor is cancerous, you will need:
- Radiation therapy.
As surgery to remove parotid tumors is complex, the presence of a multidisciplinary medical group will help achieve better results.
Since its inauguration in 2009, our Cancer Center has offered chemotherapy and radiation therapy treatments at the level of the best medical centers in the world through a comprehensive care model for cancer patients.
