Hello- I am new to this group. Came across it while doing some searching of parotid and salivary gland issues. In October 2015 I was diagnosed with Acinic Cell Carcinoma, aka Salivary Gland Cancer. It started with a lump under my right ear. Soar throat....scratchy voice (like I was getting a cold but never did). I had surgery, to remove the tumor. I had several teeth removed-and then 3 months of radiation. I just passed my one year mark of that being done. I go in Monday for my every 6 month PET scan, and feeling nervous. I just started having pain on the opposite side now. I dont feel a lump but the pain when I eat is really bothersome. Anyway, I thought maybe if I could answer any questions I'd be happy too.
