Your neck is an important part of your ear, nose, and throat health. ENT and Allergy Specialists offers several different types of neck gland or neck mass surgeries to address common medical conditions. These procedures include:
Neck operations can be simple or more complicated, depending on the nature of your condition.
If your physician is simply removing a mass, the procedure is generally done on an outpatient basis and you can return home the same day. If you’re getting parotid or thyroid surgery, you may have an overnight stay in the hospital.
With neck gland or neck mass surgery, it’s common to experience swelling or inflammation that may affect the shape of your face, your lips, or even your eyes. You might have neck pain or a hoarse voice following the operation.
If you’ve been diagnosed with a mass or a gland problem, it’s not a good idea to put off treatment. Thyroid problems or tumors can create a host of issues that may affect your ear, nose, and throat health.
The expert physicians at ENT and Allergy Specialists have decades of experience in these types of technical surgeries. To learn more or schedule a consultation, book an appointment online or call the office today to get started.
