Treatment of salivary gland cancer

The goal of treatment is to establish locoregional control, prevent problems from local and regional tumor growth, as well as prevent recurrence. 

Treatment is intended to maintain optimal conditions for function and anatomical appearance.

Most patients are treated with a combination of surgery and radiation therapy. 

Per today, there are few studies investigating chemotherapy for salivary gland cancer. For this reason, chemotherapy is given only palliatively.

Age (>70 years) is not a contraindication for treatment, but the patient must be in good physical and mental condition (8).
