Head and Neck Tumors
Lumps or masses in the head, neck, and throat can be very concerning and anxiety producing for patients and family alike. There are a broad array of disorders which can produce growths in the head and neck region. They include inflammatory conditions such as infections, congenital or developmental anomalies, as well as benign and malignant neoplasms.
There are a variety of ways that an accurate diagnosis can be made. Physical examination, CT scans, ultrasound, and both incisional and excisional biopsies may be necessary. A number of these options can be performed conveniently during the office visit.
Treatment options vary widely from observation to removal of the growth. Malignancies are sometimes treated with a variety of therapies including surgery, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy. Some treatments can be performed locally. For more complicated cases we have partnered with specialists at both the University of Maryland Medical Center and Johns Hopkins Hospital for more comprehensive care.
