Abstract

Tumors of the head and neck present particular challenges for the pediatric surgeon asked to evaluate them. A working knowledge of the embryology, anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology of the head and neck is needed. While the majority of these tumors are benign, an understanding of the fundamentals of surgical oncology is needed when approaching these tumors to ensure proper assessment and treatment.
