Carotid body tumours.
Carotid body tumours are a rare class of paraganglionoma arising from the upper neck, but should be considered in the differential diagnosis of neck lumps. A wrong diagnosis of cervical lymphadenopathy followed by excision biopsy may have serious consequences. The only way to minimize such risk is to be aware of their existence.
