Neck Masses

Proper evaluation of a neck mass includes obtaining a complete history and performing a thorough examination of the neck and all mucosal surfaces. Imaging options include CT with contrast, MRI with contrast, and ultrasound, which may assist in the diagnosis and help define the extent of a lesion. Classification includes congenital, inflammatory, and neoplastic disorders. In general, pedi-atric neck masses are usually inflammatory, followed by congenital lesions. Neoplasia occurs less often in pediatric patients. In adults, neoplasia is by far the most common entity, with inflammatory causes less common and congenital masses rare.
