Despite early objections concerning the utility of fineneedle aspiration (FNA) for the diagnosis of salivary gland lesions, the technique has become a common procedure for the investigation of salivary gland abnormalities. At present, most of our clinical colleagues will agree that results from FNA of a salivary gland mass are useful in determining whether to perform surgery and which type of surgery to offer. An important factor in the application of FNA results to clinical management is… CONTINUE READING
