My husband had a thyroglossal cyst removed at 14, but it has since returned as an adult. The doctor didn't seem concerned. Thoughts?

In brief: Recurrent

Although the cyst was removed, the tract may have been persistent below, within or above the hyoid bone which may result in recurrence.
This should be removed if recurrently infected or enlarging.
