or tumor,
tissue composed of cells that grow in an abnormal way. Normal tissue is growth-limited, i.e., cell reproduction is equal to cell death. Feedback controls limit cell division after a certain number of cells have developed, allowing for tissue repair

The CA has been traditionally categorized with other several uncommon benign salivary gland tumours for many years.1 Thus, CA and basal cell adenoma (BCA) were called together as \'monomorphic adenomas.\'3,6,7 Since the CA and BCA have been determined to have distinct clinical and histopathological features,5,6,8-10 the term of monomorphic adenoma is revised.
