A thyroglossal duct cyst is a freely movable cystic mass that lies high in the neck at the midline and is attached to the base of the tongue. It is a remnant of fetal development.
An incision is made in the center of the neck and the cyst is removed. The mid portion of the hyoid bone may also be removed. This is a day surgery operation and your child will go home the same day.
