Mucoceles 小唾液腺が損傷すると形成され、詰まった管内に唾液が蓄積します。これらの腫瘍は通常、痛みがなく、滑らかで、青みがかった色または透明に見える場合があり、通常サイズは 1 cm を超えません。治療には外科的切除が含まれ、場合によっては外科医が再発を防ぐために近くの腺も切除します。
Mucocele develops as a consequence of mechanical trauma to a minor salivary gland, which is followed by saliva retention and accumulation inside the blocked and dilated excretory ducts of the gland. Lesions are usually painless, with smooth surfaces, bluish or transparent. Most are not larger than 1 cm in diameter. They are treated by surgical removal; at that time, the surgeon often decides to perform the ablation of the neighboring minor salivary glands in order to prevent relapses.
