Overview

Radiation exposure and positive family history are known risk factors for acinic cell carcinoma.

Risk factors

Clinical data has suggested that the development of acinic cell carcinoma is related to several factors.

  • Radiation exposure: Radiation treatment for the head and neck cancer increases the risk of developing salivary gland cancer. Workplace exposure to certain radioactive substances may also increase the risk of salivary gland cancer.
  • Family history: Some epidemiological data suggest that members of some families seem to have a higher than usual risk of developing salivary gland cancers.
