Salivary gland cancers are relatively rare and quite diverse. Current therapy relies on local ablation. There are few large clinical trials or randomized trials to guide treatment, especially for metastatic disease. This article reviews the epidemiology, staging, molecular characteristics, and treatment evidence for the most common types of salivary cancers and suggests potential future diagnostic and treatment directions. Progress in understanding the molecular and cell biology of salivary… CONTINUE READING
