A pair of salivary glands, named as tubarial glands, was found between the nasal cavity and throat, i.e., at the nasopharynx's lateral walls, overlaying the torus tubarius by the Netherlands Cancer Institute while working on radiation toxicity among prostate cancer patients. The tubarial glands were identified using prostate-specific membrane antigen imaging using positron emission tomography coupled with computed tomography, which is used to detect the spread of prostate cancer. The anatomy, physiology, oncological study of the glands, and data's interpretation and limitations from the research to date have been discussed.
