Tumors or growths in the head and neck region can be divided into those that are benign (not cancerous) and malignant (cancerous). Fortunately, most growths in the head and neck region in children are benign. These benign growths can be related to infection, inflammation, fluid collections, swellings, or neoplasms (tumors) that are not life-threatening.
The malignant growths, on the other hand, may be life-threatening and cause other problems related to their growth and spread. Even the malignant growths in the head and neck are usually treatable.
