submandibular gland is a common side for wat type of formation and how does it present iself?
The submandibular gland is a common site of calculus formation, but this condition is rare in
other salivary glands. The presence of a tense swelling below the body of the mandible,
greatest before or during a meal, and absent / reduced between meals, is diagnostic of this
condition. Palpation of the gland will reveal a blocked orifice of the duct and frequently the
stone can actually be palpated within the duct.
