Lump in Neck

Scenario

A 62 year old man presents with a 3cm hard mobile lump in the mid left neck. He comes into the ED at 1am concerned he has cancer.

Tasks

  • You ring me to ask advice, and my advice is "Take a history, do an examination, think about it for 15 minutes and ring me back". Give me the night time spiel that will convince me he has a typical presentation of a head and neck malignancy (ISBAR please, 10 lines max)
  • Discuss the curative management of head & neck malignancy
