Submax region: Oral low grade adenocarcinomas are relatively rare. Since the major portion of the oral cavity is squamous cells lining the cavity, squamous Ca is most frequently found. The adenocarcinomas arising from glandular tissue arise from the minor salivary gland lining the cheeks and areas like sublingual glands which when harboring malignancies, spread is to the upper cerival or submax region.

Unclear: Your question is not clear to me. Please expand and explain it better. Most oral cancers spread to the upper neck lymph nodes.
