Among salivary gland cancer cases, researchers found a worrying rise in the number of cases of malignant growth in parotid glands - the salivary gland located under the ear, near the location where cell phones are held.
Of 11,800 Israelis who developed oral cancers during the period studied, salivary gland cancer was the third most common. Most oral cancer patients were over 70, with only 2.7 percent under 20.
