Hi,

Firstly, coming to cancer care pack, it consists of antioxidant which prevent from getting cancer after cancer has occurred its use less. You're saying it’s a parotid tumor. I want to know a brief history, is it swelling, pain, any paralysis of the facial muscle? 1st it is better to get an ultrasound of the swelling and fancy swelling. Most probably, it will be plemorphic adenoma in 90% cases.

For this surgery is only option no other modality works. Therefore, it is better to get that investigation done and consult general surgeon for surgery. If you delay, it has a chance of malignant transformation. For this we need to do a much bigger surgery than a simple surgery. Hence, get the surgery done as soon as possible.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Tata Lokesh Kumar, General Surgeon
