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. Suggest ENT eval. Dry mouth not always presentSee 2 more doctor answers

I going to ent nov7 I had just swelling on my parotid gland for 5 weeks doc didn't feel no Tumor he said more inflamed. My chances good of no cancer?
Parotid: Parotid cancers are not that common, but when they do, they invariably present as a distinct mass or tumor. Non-distinct swelling of the glands is typically infection or inflammation.
