When removal of the salivary gland is required
The salivary glands play an important role in the human body. They produce saliva, which is necessary for wetting mucous membranes, breaking down food at the initial stage of digestion. Nevertheless, situations arise when only the removal of the salivary gland becomes the solution to certain problems. These include:
- oncological diseases;
- inflammatory processes, accompanied by the formation of pus in the salivary gland;
- severe injuries;
- irreversible violation of the ducts.
Operations of this kind are performed by maxillofacial surgeons. As for benign tumors, conservative methods are acceptable, but they only slow down the process of tumor growth. Sooner or later, the salivary gland will have to be removed.
While the tumor is small, it is visible only on ultrasound, CT or X-ray, it is usually not touched. But if the tumor is malignant, then operative measures are taken.
Technically, removal of the salivary gland does not cause significant harm to the patient. The human body has enough salivary glands to support vital functions. Nevertheless, a thorough examination by a specialized specialist is necessary, because in some cases, delay in the operation can have a high cost in the form of serious consequences.

At the same time, the prices of services are at a normal level, so that residents of the CIS countries could not save on their own health.
