Salivary Gland Neoplasms Treatment: Introduction

  • Salivary glands comprise three major secretory glands: parotid, submandibular, and sublingual, and several minor glands. The function of these glands is the production and secretion of saliva. Saliva is a lubricating fluid that apart from keeping the mouth and throat moist also contains digestive enzymes that help in digesting food. It also contains antibodies and other substances that help prevent infections of the mouth and throat.
  • Salivary gland tumors are comparatively rare in comparison to the total incidence of head and neck region tumors. The overall incidence of salivary gland tumors varies across the world, from approximately 0.4 to 13.5 cases per 100,000 people. The parotid gland is the most common site of occurrence of salivary gland tumors.

  • In order to reduce mortality and morbidity rate, governments in developed and developing countries are conducting awareness campaigns to encourage people to go for early diagnosis of cancer. This, in turn, is expected to increase awareness about cancer diagnosis and treatment.
  • A number of companies have started Patient Support Programs (PSPs) to reduce the cost of treatment. For example, Roche's Blue Tree Program offers support to cancer patients during their treatment journey.
  • High cost of drugs is one of the major concerns among patients as well as payers. The cost of cancer drugs used for the treatment has increased in the past few years, making it difficult for patients to afford the treatment. Treatment costs are covered by insurance; however, the out-of-pocket cost for the insured can also be high. Increasing costs lead to delay in treatment or complete avoidance of taking prescribed medication. These factors act as restraints of the global market.
