parotid tumors, ayurvedic treatment, herbal remedies, causes, symptoms, diagnosis

Parotid tumors are slow-growing tumors which are the one of the most common types of salivary gland tumors. Parotid tumors account for almost 85 percent of all salivary gland tumors --- that is, tumours which can get triggered in any of the salivary glands in your mouth, neck or throat.

Parotid tumors are generally non-cancerous (benign) tumors, but nearly 25 percent of these tumors can be malignant (cancerous).

Parotid tumors affect the parotid glands which are located on both sides of the face, just in front of the ears. These glands comprise a large set of major salivary glands under and behind the jaw. The main responsibility of these glands is to produce saliva, for assisting the process of chewing and digesting food.

The exact cause of the occurrence of Parotid tumors, or other salivary gland tumors, is not known. Nonetheless, doctors are aware of the fact that most of the salivary gland tumors occur when some cells in a salivary gland develop mutations in their DNA.


People affected by Parotid tumours may usually show a variety of signs and symptoms, which commonly include a mass or swelling in or near their jaw region. The swelling may or may not be painful.

However, in case the Parotid tumor is malignant, some of the common symptoms of the tumor may include:

  • Effect on the facial nerve
  • Persistent pain in salivary gland area
  • Numbness in part of the face
  • Muscle weakness on one side of the face
  • Burning/prickling sensation
  • Loss of facial movement.


The common tests and procedures which are usually carried out by doctors to establish the diagnosis of a Parotid tumor include:

  • A physical exam of the jaw, neck and throat for ascertaining lumps or swelling.
  • Biopsy or collection of sample of tissue for laboratory testing to find out whether the tumor is cancerous.
  • Imaging tests like Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and Computerized Tomography (CT) to determine the size and location of the tumor.


The most preferred treatment for Parotid tumors is surgery (parotidectomy) for removing all or a part of the parotid gland. In the case of malignant Parotid tumors, doctors may also recommend radiation therapy.
