How common are neck lumps?
Neck lumps are fairly common and they can occur in any age group, and depending on which age group they happen in, this will often determine how seriously it should be treated. For example, in children, nearly all neck lumps are benign and purely inflammatory in nature. In adults, however, the picture differs slightly. In adults, certain neck lumps may be tumours, which can be either benign or malignant, but should be taken seriously in each case. Mr Brian Fish is a leading otolaryngologist, and here he explains how common neck lumps are, when you should see a doctor, and when they should be a concern.
