Tumor - salivary duct
Signs and tests
- A firm, usually painless swelling in one of the salivary glands (in front of the ears, under the chin, or on the floor of the mouth); the size of the swelling gradually increases.
- Difficulty moving one side of the face, known as facial nerve palsy
An examination by a health care provider or dentist shows a larger-than-normal salivary gland, usually one of the parotid glands.
