Radiation-induced salivary gland tumors: A report of 18 cases and a review of the literature
Head and Neck Neoplasms
There is an association between radiation exposure and the risk of developing an SGT. There was a wide range in the dose of radiation and the age at exposure, suggesting that exposure to head and neck radiation at any age and dose may increase the risk for SGT. This series also suggests an increased risk for developing malignant (versus benign) SGT after radiation exposure.
