Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Neck masses are common and may have serious underlying pathology. There is much anxiety and confusion in primary care as to which hospital department will provide the patient with the best service and the swiftest diagnosis. A clinic was set up at Wexham Park hospital to enable patients with neck masses to be seen early, and to undergo a one-stop specialist evaluation, ultrasound scan and fine needle aspiration biopsy. The clinic has yielded a wide variety of benign and malignant pathology. The first 100 patients are discussed and evaluated.
