Accurate diagnosis of neck masses is critical to minimize morbidity and mortality. However, differentials vary greatly and can be challenging for the physician.

Most neck masses in the pediatric population have an infectious etiology, whereas an adult neck mass is considered to be a malignancy until proven otherwise. Evaluation of a neck mass depends on the history and physical examination; evaluation may also include observation, antibiotics, fine-needle aspiration, open biopsy, neck dissection, or wide local excision.
