In brief: See you doc
A thyroglossal duct cyst is a neck mass or lump that develops from cells and tissues remaining after the formation of the thyroid gland.
It is most commonly diagnosed in childhood after an upper respiratory infection when it enlarges and becomes painful. Treatment can involve just simple antibiotics or, in some cases surgery. See your doc for an evaluation and to form a treatment plan.
