About Neck Mass Surgery

Dr. Reddy performs neck mass surgery for both benign and malignant tumors, parotid tumors, and thyroid goiters or nodules. Benign neck masses include lymph nodes, pleomorphic adenomas, lipomas, thyroglossal duct cysts, branchial cleft cysts, and thyroid goiters. Malignant (cancerous) neck masses include thyroid cancer, lymphoma (for diagnosis and treatment planning), and squamous cell carcinoma.

Prior to surgery, a full workup is first completed. A physical examination is often followed by an in-office endoscopic evaluation through the nose called a nasopharyngolaryngoscopy. Next, imaging studies such as an ultrasound, CT scan, or MRI are often ordered. Finally, a biopsy (or fine needle aspiration) is usually done prior to surgery.
