We strive to help break the silence about the potential danger of salivary gland cancer that is affecting thousands of people and increase the information available to the everyday person who may not even know that this cancer exists.


What is Salivary Gland Cancer?

Salivary gland cancer is a rare form of cancer that begins in the salivary glands of the body. Tumors are formed when the typical cells become mutated and don’t die naturally as the normal cells would, creating an accumulation of cells. These cells can begin to spread into other parts of the body, or Metastasize.
