Abstract

Salivary lesions occupy a prominent position in the differential diagnosis of neck masses; particularly those located in level I and II of the neck. In most cases, the patient's history and physical examination and radiographic studies are able to strongly suggest the diagnosis. A fine-needle aspiration biopsy should be considered in the work-up of parotid tail masses and this biopsy should be obtained in the work-up of discrete masses of the submandibular gland noted on physical examination and confirmed by CT scans. This sequence of therapy results in precise and expedient surgical treatment of these neck masses.
