Scope note: A benign, slow-growing tumor, most commonly of the salivary gland, occurring as a small, painless, firm nodule, usually of the parotid gland, but also found in any major or accessory salivary gland anywhere in the oral cavity. It is most often seen in women in the fifth decade. Histologically, the tumor presents a variety of cells: cuboidal, columnar, and squamous cells, showing all forms of epithelial growth. (Dorland, 27th ed)
Annotation: coordinate with SALIVARY GLAND NEOPLASMS or specific salivary gland neoplasm precoordinated term; if of a minor salivary gland, coordinate with SALIVARY GLAND NEOPLASMS + SALIVARY GLANDS, MINOR; for X ref SYRINGOMA, CHONDROID, coordinate with SWEAT GLAND NEOPLASMS
