In patients with a malignant tumor of the upper respiratory or upper digestive tract, it is advisable to perform flexible esophagogastroduodenoscopy; the detection rate of a synchronous primary tumor is about 3–13% (Levine and Nielson 1992). 9 Salivary Glands The parotid glands are located in close proximity to the cartilage of the external auditory canal. Anteriorly the gland abuts both the lateral and posterior border of the ramus of the mandible and the overlying masseter muscle, while inferiorly it rests medially on the posterior belly of the digastric muscle, as well as the sternocleidomastoid muscle laterally.

It is often difficult to distinguish between a tumor arising within the submandibular gland or an enlarged node close to the gland or on its outer surface. Bimanual palpation is essential to differentiate between the two, since a node lying on the outer surface of the salivary gland is unlikely to be palpated by a finger in the mouth, whereas a tumor of the gland itself is more readily compressible bimanually. Pleomorphic adenomas of the submandibular gland are usually large, quite hard, and nodular, but may be confused with a slowly growing malignancy such as an adenoid cystic carcinoma.
