Neck Mass Diagnosis


We’ll do a physical exam and ask you about your health history. During the exam, we will pay special attention to your:

  • Mouth
  • Throat and neck
  • Ears
  • Eyes
  • Nose

Tests may include:

  • Blood work: We will analyze your blood for signs of cancer.
  • Biopsy: We may use a thin needle to take a sample of tissue so our pathologists can examine it for signs of cancer.
  • Imaging tests: We may perform X-rays, ultrasound or MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) tests to get detailed views of your head, neck or chest.
