Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the Parotid
This page was last updated on: August 1, 2012
Primary squamous cell carcinoma of the parotid is uncommon, occurring in only 2% of parotid neoplasms.
This is an aggressive malignancy, usually presenting in an advanced stage and associated with facial nerve involvement or cervical metastases.
Prognosis is poor even with radical surgery and adjunctive radiotherapy. Careful clinical
and histological review is necessary to differentiate primary squamous cancer of the parotid from metastases or other primary parotid malignancy.
