At a neck lump clinic, you can have all the tests needed to check for cancer in a neck lump.
This is a one-stop clinic where you can have all the tests needed to check for cancer in a neck lump. You will usually have an ultrasound scan. A doctor or nurse will take a sample of tissue (biopsy) will be taken from the lump in your neck. They can do this using a fine needle aspiration or needle (core) biopsy. You may also have a test called a nasendoscopy to look at the back of your mouth, nose and throat. The clinic may give you the results of your tests on the same day. But you may need to wait up to 7 to 10 days.
