Chapter 15 addresses the considerable heterogeneity among recurrent salivary cancers, and that two groups are recognizable; truly aggressivecancers that have recurred despite adequate treatment, and small low-grade lesions that have failed due to inadequate initial treatment. The categorization (restaging) of recurrent tumours into groups I and II (defined in terms of recurrent tumour mobility, nodal status, and grade) is highly predictive of outcome, but overall the salvage rate is modest.
