The role of adjuvant radiotherapy (ART) for cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (cSCC) following negative surgical margins is unclear.
The goal of the present study was to assess the association between intraparotid lymph node (IPN) metastasis and prognosis in high-grade mucoepidermoid carcinoma (MEC) of the parotid gland.
Although mucoepidermoid carcinoma is the most common primary malignancy of the salivary glands, the sclerosing morphologic variant of this tumor is extremely rare and only 26 cases have been reported ...
We conducted a retrospective follow-up study to determine if adjunctive radiotherapy (RT) affected disease-free survival in patients with oral squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) who were found to have clos...
Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC) is a rare and aggressive cutaneous malignancy with a high propensity for local recurrence and regional and distant metastases. The main treatment is surgery with narrow exc...
By this non-randomized prospective study, it's evaluated the outcome of patients underwent BCS for DCIS at whom an established score system to address adjuvant therapies have been prospect...
This study will assess the benefit of postoperative adjuvant radiotherapy in patients with an early oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) having tumor thickness more than or equal to 5mm. Th...
In this study, the investigators will evaluate the clinical usefulness of 3 dimensional double echo steady state MRI (3D-DESS MRI) for functional preservation of the facial nerve during pa...
This prospective interventional study aims at evaluating the safety and efficacy of an adjuvant radiation treatment in cases of muscle-invasive bladder cancer, submitted to radical cystect...
Liberal use of fine needle aspiration biopsy of parotid gland masses is controversial. All information regarding this procedure has been retrospective. Our objective is to evaluate prospec...
A tumor of both low- and high-grade malignancy. The low-grade grow slowly, appear in any age group, and are readily cured by excision. The high-grade behave aggressively, widely infiltrate the salivary gland and produce lymph node and distant metastases. Mucoepidermoid carcinomas account for about 21% of the malignant tumors of the parotid gland and 10% of the sublingual gland. They are the most common malignant tumor of the parotid.

Radiotherapy given to augment some other form of treatment such as surgery or chemotherapy. Adjuvant radiotherapy is commonly used in the therapy of cancer and can be administered before or after the primary treatment.
Combined chemotherapy and radiotherapy given to augment some other form of treatment such as surgery. It is commonly used in the therapy of cancer.
Tumors or cancer of the PAROTID GLAND.
A variant of well-differentiated epidermoid carcinoma that is most common in the oral cavity, but also occurs in the larynx, nasal cavity, esophagus, penis, anorectal region, vulva, vagina, uterine cervix, and skin, especially on the sole of the foot. Most intraoral cases occur in elderly male abusers of smokeless tobacco. The treatment is surgical resection. Radiotherapy is not indicated, as up to 30% treated with radiation become highly aggressive within six months. (Segen, Dictionary of Modern Medicine, 1992)
