The contents of the BS are adipose tissue, minor salivary gland

The most common benign major and minor salivary gland
tumour was the pleomorphic adenoma, which constituted 66% of the total cases studied (39 cases out of 59 studied).
3 In 80% of cases, they affect the parotid gland, while 10% each are seen in submandibular and minor salivary glands
In parotid gland benign tumors are about 80% and the same drops to 60% in the submandibular glands, where as in minor salivary glands
especially in oral cavity malignant tumors outnumbers the benign tumors.
mucins were employed as the histChemical staining of the minor salivary glands
This tumor has been observed and documented in major and minor salivary glands
of both children and adults.
18%) MEC were diagnosed being 29 located in minor salivary glands
Minor salivary gland
pleomorphic adenoma of the parapharyngeal space.
Although the low-power gray-blue tumor hue of polymorphous low-grade adenocarcinoma (PLGA), a result of the tumor's mucohyaline matrix and the neoplastic cell's vesicular chromatin, usually allows for the quick elimination of MASC, (26) PLGA not uncommonly coexpresses S100 protein and mammaglobin (15) and usually occurs in minor salivary gland
sites, and therefore it could easily enter into a differential diagnosis with MASC, especially on small biopsy specimens.
