Concluded answer

A case of MUCOEPIDERMOID CARCINOMA (MEC) The patient had presented with a palatal swelling that was present for several months and presented with a focal area of ulceration. No bone affection was present. MEC is the most common salivary gland malignancy in young age and low grade tumors may mimic benign tumors. The treatment of MEC depends on alot of factors like size, stage. Furthermore, the histological grade plays a very important role in deciding treatment protocols. Low grade tumors like this case require surgical excision only ( if lymph nodes are not involved). Higher grade tumors need neck dissection as well and may require adjuvent chemotherapy and radiotherapy Thus histological grading is VERY IMPORTANT.
