A 76-YEAR-OLD WOMAN presented with a 15- to 20-year history of a mass on the posterior aspect of the left side of her neck. The mass had slowly increased in size, with more rapid expansion over the past 2 years. The patient complained of local pain, pressure, and shoulder discomfort. She denied any history of local trauma or radiation therapy and had a medical history that was significant for hypothyroidism and gastroesophageal reflux disease. She had smoked 1 pack of cigarettes per day for 10 years, but quit 40 years ago.
