A Rare Tumor on The Hard Palate


Carcinoma Ex Pleomorphic Adenoma of The Hard Palate


Pleomorphic adenoma is a bening lesion that accounts for 3-10% of head and neck area tumors. Often 4 of life. it'll come out in a minute. Pleomorphic adenoma, which is slightly more common in women, is the most common tumor of the salivary gland. It grows slowly and is painless. Those with Intraoral placement may be asymptomatic and may cause dysphagia, slurred speech, dental irritation and snoring.

The pleomorphic adenoma, which can reach large sizes when originating from major salivary glands, rarely exceeds 1-2 cm when localized within the mouth. They are usually submucosal masses covered with normal mucosa and do not cause ulceration in the mucosa. Because they are painless, a long time can pass until the patient is admitted to a clinic, even if they notice the mass.

The prognosis of the patient may vary depending on the stage of the tumor and the amount of invasive component developed within the plemorphic adenoma. In patients with more invasive components, the chance of 5 years of survival decreases. 

These tumors can be classified in 3 ways: noninvasive, minimally invasive, or widely invasive.

For the first 2 types of treatment total surgical excision and radiotherapy application can be done; 3. this type of wide invasive Carcinoma ex pleomorphic adenoma can also be used in different combinations of chemoerapy.

The patient seen in the photos on this page has been diagnosed with carcinoma ex pleomorphic adenoma (CXPA) in the hard palate after the histopathological evaluation of the biopsy material and has been admitted to an otolaryngologist with a growing mass in the hard palate for about 3 months. The patient's preferences for further evaluation were planned and the treatment was planned in terms of surgical and radiotherapy treatment.

My parents died at my hands because of cancer, and I don't treat ear, nose and throat cancer diseases. I shared it here for information. I wish to heal all cancer patients and give the patient's relatives strength and patience.
