Things That Go Bump in the Neck: Common and Rare Masses Seen in Pediatrics

In this talk for primary care providers, pediatric otolaryngologist Grace Banik, MD, discusses how to assess and categorize the range of neck lumps that can affect children, presenting criteria on location, size, mobility and other features, as well as questions to ask when gathering a history. She describes cyst types; explains when to suspect cancer; offers workup guidance, including lab tests and imaging; and advises on when to refer. Bonus: Banik lays out steps for primary care management of other common ENT diagnoses when seeing a specialist isn’t warranted.
