Oncology Questions? Ask an Oncologist for Answers ASAP
Hello this is Dr. Salama MD,
Are you having any symptoms that would suggest salivary/parotid gland issues?
Did the CT scan show any abnormality with the parotid gland? Is the gland itself swollen?
Do you have a copy of the report results so I can see them?
Do you know if it was a CT head or just CT neck?
Ok that's good to know. If you want to rule out a specific parotid gland abnormality a CT head/MRI brain should be ordered for it to be well visualized and evaluated. Since you are already having an MRI brain, make sure to mention there is no need for any additional action on your part. Should there be a problem a fine needle aspiration and biopsy will be definitive in diagnosing any potential abnormalities.
Let me know if you have any other questions. If not, please don't forget to leave a positive rating as that's the only way I get credit for answering your question. Thank you.
Just reread my response, ignore "make sure to mention"
Is there anything else I can help you with?
