Neck masses are common physical examination findings seen in the outpatient setting but identifying an underlying cause can be challenging. A careful medical history should be obtained, and a thorough physical examination should be performed, which will guide the need for follow-up examination with imaging, biopsies, and specialist referrals. The goal of this article is to provide a working framework to evaluate and manage some of the most common causes of adult neck masses.
