Diagnosis of Neck Lumps


An abnormal mass in the neck is an important clinical finding in all age groups. The challenge is to differentiate trivial disease with a self limiting natural history from more serious pathology. The aim of this article is to provide a structure in order to make the correct diagnosis in patients presenting with a neck lump. The relevant anatomy will be described as well as some important principles to aid in diagnosis. Common causes of neck lumps and their management will then be described.
