186 Possible Causes for Parotid Mass

  • Pleomorphic Adenoma

    We report a case of a 77-year-old man, who presented with a 6-year history of a parotid mass that had undergone rapid growth within weeks.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A large mass with a heterogeneous medial portion involves primarily the deep lobe of the parotid gland.[emedicine.medscape.com] Magnetic resonance imaging revealed an infiltrative mass in the parotid gland, and the fine-needle aspiration (FNA) biopsy result was highly suspicious for carcinoma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Sialadenitis

    A 52-year-old man presented with a left parotid mass. Fine needle aspiration biopsy was consistent with Warthin's tumor. The mass lesion was excised.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We report the case of a man with a parotid mass that exhibited features consistent with an inflammatory process on fine-needle aspiration biopsy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] FNAC of palpable lymph node is mandatory for parotid mass where FNAC of parotid is inconclusive.[jhrr.org]

  • Malignant Parotid Tumor

    FNAC of palpable lymph node is mandatory for parotid mass where FNAC of parotid is inconclusive.[jhrr.org] Computerized tomography revealed a heterogeneous mass in the parotid region ( Figure 1 ). An incisional biopsy was performed.[scielo.br] Parotid masses occur most commonly in the lower pole, or tail, and in the superficial lobe of the gland.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Necrotizing Sialometaplasia

    We report a case of necrotizing sialometaplasia diagnosed after superficial parotidectomy due to bilateral parotid masses in a 69-year old heavy smoking female.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The border between the mass and the normal parotid gland tissue was unclear, suggesting the inflammatory mass in the parotid gland tail ( Figure 3 ).[doi.org] A 66-year-old male had left neck and pharyngeal masses and biopsy specimen showed a monotonous proliferation of atypical lymphoid cells with massive necrosis in the parotid[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Parotid Duct Obstruction

    masses poorly defined by magnetic resonance imaging.[springerlink.com] Of the parotid gland masses, 75% are tumours, of which 80% are benign (non cancerous). The most common benign parotid tumour is a pleomorphic adenoma.[theentcentre.com] Surgical treatment for parotid lumps If a mass has developed within the salivary gland, removal will usually be recommended – most masses in the parotid gland area are benign[ent-surgery.com.au]

  • Ganglion Cyst

    Abstract Ganglion cysts of the temporomandibular joint are very rare and always misdiagnosed as synovial cyst, parotid gland tumor, or other cystic lesions.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Image studies could facilitate to identify the tumor mass from the adjacent soft tissue, but a definitive diagnosis could be made from the pathologic report.A 59-year-old[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pregnancy

    Imaging and biopsy were consistent with parotid gland malignancy, with surgical resection undertaken at 33 4 weeks' gestation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The mass had been stable for more than 10 years, but showed rapid growth during pregnancy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract A 27-year-old woman presented with an enlarging painless right preauricular mass at 28 weeks' pregnant.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Kimura Disease

    On MR the nodes had high T1-weighted and T2-weighted signal intensities as did portions of the parotid mass. There were suspected flow voids in the parotid mass.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Any parotid mass found in a patient of Far-Eastern origin showing hypereosinophilia should suggest a diagnosis of intraparotid Kimura disease.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Kimura's disease presenting as bilateral parotid masses. Eur Arch Otorhinolaryngol 2005;262:8-10. [ PUBMED ] 2. Kimura T, Yoshimura S, Ishikawa E.[jcytol.org]
