NIH Rare Diseases:43 Mucoepidermoid carcinoma is a type of cancer of the salivary glands.  salivary gland cancer is diagnosed in 2-3 individuals per 100,000 people each year, and 30-35% of these are mucoepidermoid carcinomas.   mucoepidermoid carcinoma develops when a cell randomly acquires changes (mutations) in genes that regulate how the cell divides such that it begins to grow quickly, forming a cluster of cells (a mass or lump).  the earliest signs of a mucoepidermoid carcinoma may include a lump in the face, neck, or mouth; numbness, weakness, or pain in part of the face; or difficulty swallowing.  treatment often begins with surgery to remove the entire tumor.  in some cases, radiation therapy and/or chemotherapy may be used after surgery to ensure that no cancer cells remain in the body. last updated: 6/18/2013

MalaCards: Mucoepidermoid Carcinoma, also known as carcinoma mucoepidermoid, is related to cutaneous mucoepidermoid carcinoma and adenoma. An important gene associated with Mucoepidermoid Carcinoma is TP63 (tumor protein p63). The compounds mucicarmine and b 723 have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include salivary gland, thyroid and lung.

Disease Ontology:8 A carcinoma that is characterized by squamous cells, mucus-secreting cells, and intermediate cells.
