They may develop nearly anywhere in the body and usually require complete excision for eradication or they are likely to recur. Fluid filled sacs that are not cellular lined ...Read more

131 radiation for thyroid cancer caused problems in my parotid gland. Fna reveals cyst AND tumor of partoid gland. What should I do. Remove or watch?

Benign tumor?: Hi. I'm sorry about the parotid gland; usually the lemon drops during the therapy period prevent that. I am assuming it's not a malignant tumor, or your doc would have already told you it needs to come out (I've never seen sialadenitis from 131-I cause cancer). Confer with the ENT surgeon you're seeing about risks vs. Benefits of removal. Good luck!

Is it possible for me to develope a cyst or a tumor on the floor of my mouth if I have a cyst or tumor on both of my parotid gland, what do this mean?

Is it possible for me to develope a cyst or a tumor on the floor of my mouth if I have a cyst or tumor on both of my parotid gland, what do this mean?

Don't worry: It's not clear what is wrong with your parotid (salivary) glands, but cancer is very rare in this area and cancer usually doesn't occur on both glands at the same time. So I'm not worried. Parotid glands can get enlarged for many non-cancer reasons. You can also develop stones in them. See a dentist or doctor if you have a lump in your mouth.

Have you seen an MD?: Is the mass fixed or mobile? Parotid gland or lymph node? Bumps painful? Fever? I would see a doctor to rule out infection that would need meds to get rid of. Good luck!

I'm 27 years old nd I have growth cyst or tumor in both parotid gland nd on the floor of the mouth nd I'm so afraid that it cancer please help me?

2B brave act brave: Your real question is, "how do I get the courage to get it seen? " it is probably not cancer at your age and with this presentation, if so it's likely curable (we cure 2 of 3 today) but you're going to need to steel yourself and make a doctor's appointment. This is where your best friend comes in handy -- tell him/her, make the phone call, and ask him/her to accompany you. Cheers.

Needs evaluation: 80% of parotid lesions are benign meaning 20% are malignant. Has there been an ultrasound or MRI to confirm it is a cyst? Cystic parotid lesions could be benign lymphoepithelial lesion, warthins tumor, etc. Some cysts may harbor cancers in the wall so suggest ultrasound and needle drainage of cyst and needle biopsy of any tumor in the wall.

Bony growth: A torus mandibularis is a slow growing bony growth on the inside of the lower jaw bone. Typically they are little more than an annoyance and require no treatment unless they interfere with the placement of a denture or if they are subject to irritation and ulceration from repeated trauma.

Is it possible that I develope a cyst in my right parotid gland becouse I sleep with my hearing aid in my right ear everynight when I go to bed?

I don't think so: I do not believe the two are related. They are really not that close. It would be more likely to form a blockage of the parotid gland duct. Make sure you are not experiencing dry mouth on just that side of your mouth.

They found a complex cystic mass with multiple septation on my left parotid gland. Do I have a greater risk of having cancer because of this?

Parotid mass: Both benign and malignant parotid tumors can present as a complex cystic mass. In looking at the percentages, 80% of masses in the parotid are benign while only 20% are malignant. Steps in evaluation could include needle aspiration biopsy which allows a look at the cells. This can possibly help to know if the lesion is benign or not. Either way, usually recommend removal of most parotid masses.
