As scientists discovered by chance, there are still unknown salivary glands in the head. The researchers published their results in the September issue of the trade journal “Radiotherapy and Oncology Journal”. The structures are similar to those below the tongue.
“Humans have three sets of large salivary glands, but not at this point,” said Wouter Vogel of the Netherlandic Cancer Institute in a press release. If the discovery holds up, it could save cancer patients pain.
