Case 108 – The Beginning

You review a 32 year old man in outpatients who has been referred for a neck lump. On examination he has a 2cm cervical lymph node which he originally noticed approximately 6 months ago. He has had no night sweats but feels tired although states he has been working nights.

Questions:

  1. What is your differential diagnosis for a neck lump?
  2. What investigations would you perform?
