Under general anesthesia, an incision is made to biopsy or remove an abnormal neck mass. Absorbable sutures or tissue glue is used and the extracted tissue is sent to the pathology lab. Occasionally a drain is placed beneath the incision area. This procedure may take up to one hour.
This operation is a relatively painless one that may result in some discomfort in the days following the procedure; however, pain should subside over the next two or three days. Patients may resume normal activity in as little as one day afterward, and there are no dietary restrictions
