Prognosis and predictive factors

Limited data suggest that the clinical stage, site of involvement and grade of tumour influence prognosis {1662,2447, 2708}. Minor gland tumours have a better prognosis than those of the major glands. Distant metastases may occur despite regional control and recurrence is more frequent with high-grade tumours {2447}. In one study, the 15-year survival for low, intermediate and high-grade tumours was 54, 31, and 3%, respectively, and the cure rate of the low-grade tumours was similar to that of acinic cell adenocarcinoma {2447}.

Adenocarcinoma, not otherwise specified 239
