    Treating Head and Neck Tumors and Infections in Children

    Fortunately, lumps and bumps in the head and neck are rarely represent a dangerous condition for a child. However, a child with any sort of neck swelling or mass needs careful evaluation and consideration by a trained physician.

    Head and Neck Experts

    Our pediatric otolaryngologists at Brenner Children's Hospital have advanced training to evaluate, diagnose and treat head and neck tumors and infections in children. They also have access to experts in pediatric oncology and other specialties, when needed, so that your child gets the best in multidisciplinary care. 

    As a first step, the physician will evaluate your child. They will perform a thoughtful examination in the clinic, which may lead to more detailed investigation and possibly imaging or other lab tests. 

    Head and neck infections can frequently be treated medically, but may sometimes require surgical intervention. Congenital neck cysts, such as thyroglossal duct cysts or branchial cleft cysts, require specific evaluation and a careful surgical plan. Malignant tumors of the head and neck area are very rare and require a highly collaborative approach with the skilled help of pediatric oncologists at Brenner Children's Hospital.
