In brief: Surgery

Salivary gland tumors are typically treated with surgery.
This can entail removing the gland and possibly lymph nodes in the area. Depending on the extent of the cancer (stage), the surgical margins or pathology, radiation therapy may also be used. http://www.cancer.gov/cancertopics/pdq/treatment/salivarygland/healthprofessional/page1.
