Five cases of resection of pharyngeal and parapharyngeal space (pps) tumors show that mandible swing approach is an optimal option for thoroughly removing retromandibular tumors of the parotid. The excisions do not injure the seventh nerve or cause any complications. In all the five cases, tumors are located at parapharyngeal space, while in one of the five cases, the tumor protrudes to the palate.
