Papillary Thyroid Carcinoma Presenting As a Cystic Lesion in Neck: A Case Report

Rizwan Khalid*

Local lymphatic spread is common in patients with papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC). Lymph node metastasis to the neck may undergo cystic degeneration which consequently delays the diagnosis and the treatment of underlying thyroid malignancy. In this study we presented a patient with a cystic lesion in the neck as the only finding on physical examination. A benign etiology was considered initially, but papillary thyroid cancer was reported after surgical excision of the lesion.
