  • PTC was only diagnosed after surgical excision of these cystic neck lesions in the first two cases, and after performing fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) and an 18fluorine-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography computed tomography (18F-FDG-PET CT) scan in the latter case. (ac.ir)
  • thyroid gland
  • Thyroglossal cysts can be defined as an irregular neck mass or a lump which develops from cells and tissues left over after the formation of the thyroid gland during developmental stages. (wikipedia.org)
  • During embryonic development, the thyroid gland is being formed, beginning at the base of the tongue and moving towards the neck canal, known as the thyroglossal duct. (wikipedia.org)
  • The thyroid gland, or simply the thyroid, is an endocrine gland in the neck, consisting of two lobes connected by an isthmus. (wikipedia.org)

  • cysts
  • Thyroglossal cysts are the most common cause of midline neck masses and are generally located caudal to (below) the hyoid bone. (wikipedia.org)
  • Other common causes of midline neck masses include lymphadenopathy, dermoid cysts, and various odontogenic anomalies. (wikipedia.org)

  • pharynx
  • With infections, there can be rare cases where an expression of fluid is projected into the pharynx causing other problems within the neck. (wikipedia.org)
  • persistent
  • If a persistent thyroglossal duct becomes fluid filled it will form a thyroglossal duct cyst, which accounts for 70% of congenital neck masses and is the most likely diagnosis if the mass is along the midline of the neck. (wikipedia.org)
  • Very rarely, the persistent duct can become cancerous, called thyroglossal duct carcinoma. (wikipedia.org)
