Abstract

Abstract THE AMERICAN Cancer Society tells us that there are over 1¼ million people living in the United States that have had cancer, were treated, and are cured; however it is estimated that in 1967 there will be 580,000 new cases of cancer diagnosed in the US, 50 million now living will eventually suffer the ravages of cancer and 27 million will eventually die of it.1 This certainly alerts us, as otolaryngologists, to the task of diagnosing and treating cancer within our own specialty. One of the malignancies that is beginning to arouse interest is cancer of the minor salivary glands, especially those of the oral cavity and surrounding tissues. This increasing interest is due in part to the rising number of cases reported in the literature and also the fact that these lesions are more superficially located in contrast to those malignancies of the major salivary glands.
