Neck lumps are among the most common presentations to primary care. The majority of cases are of a benign aetiology, however, the morbidity associated with delayed referral or incorrect diagnosis can be catastrophic in cases of malignancy. It is, therefore, vital that clinicians have a sound approach to this important presentation. The aim of this article is to equip clinicians with an understanding of regional neck anatomy and pathology, a systematic approach to neck masses, and guidance to follow for appropriate investigations and referrals.
