People with neck lumps can be investigated by many different specialities as referral patterns vary for neck lumps. What people do not realise is that often some specialities have a specific slant on investigations. For example endocrine clinics concentrate on thyroid lumps, haematology clinics are concerned about cervical lymph nodes and importantly lymphoma.
The key however is for investigation through a clinic that deals with all type of neck lumps, that offers a multi disciplinary (surgical, radiology and cytology) assesment. The Modern day Head and Neck Clinic has thus evolved and all types of neck lumps are seen as a result offering the patient rapid swift diagnoses by experts in the field.
