Caption: Parotid gland cancer, light micrograph. This is a tissue sample from an acinic cell carcinoma of the parotid gland. This is a slow-growing cancer that is also found in similar tissue in the breast and pancreas. The parotid gland is one of the salivary glands. In humans there are three sets of paired salivary glands. They are exocrine glands, secreting saliva and mucus to help break down food in the mouth. This sample has been prepared using the hematoxylin and eosin stain (HES). Magnification: x70 when printed at 10 centimetres across.
