The reason being my husband was diagnosed with ACC on wed 4th August much to our shock because he had first gone to the doctors back in March as I noticed on my birthday that his smile had dropped. He was rushed into hospital with suspected stroke age After 2 day stay and what we believed to be thorough test he was discharged with Bells Paulsy. He basically walked out of hospital feeling so relieved and started to research about it.

After 6 weeks he felt it was getting worse with numbness and stinging sensation so he went to see a doctor. She asked if she could examine him, straight away she felt a small lump in his neck and she referred him to a consultant at the hospital straight away. The mean time my hubby was convinced it had something to do with dentist treatment he had previously had so he had an X-ray at his dentist which confirmed a small shadow.

The dentist advised him to take the X-ray with him to see the first consultant as he was sure his facial droop had nothing todo with his dentistry. So after a further stent of appointment after appointment he was diagnosed from the biopsy as having ACC.

What was I to think! Their are four consultants dealing with my husband and they all say different things but all agree he has ACC. Please did any one else take this long to diagnose and did you have any pain? Sending positive thoughts to all of you.

There are some general tendencies, such as the propensity for it to spread into surrounding nerve tissue or metastasize to other areas of the body, yet each patient can experience their own diverse patterns and issues. It is commonly considered to be a salivary gland tumor and grouped with other oral cancers in statistical studies since it occurs predominantly in that area. The oral area includes the major and minor salivary glands, roof of mouth palate , floor of mouth, gums, tongue, pharynx and lips. Though it is often considered to be a salivary gland tumor, ACC actually occurs in the broader grouping of all types of secretory glands glands that secrete fluids including tear glands, sweat glands, mucus and excretory glands. In a limited number of cases it may have already spread into adjoining areas through nerve invasion or metastasized to the lungs, liver or bone as well.
