A 34-year-old African American man presented to the ear, nose, and throat clinic with night sweats, subjective low-grade fevers, and a 9- to 14-kg weight loss that had occurred over the last several weeks. Examination of his head and neck revealed a 3-cm nontender mass, 2 cm to the left of the midline, that moved with swallowing. The results of the rest of the physical examination were unremarkable. The patient denied any pain, dysphagia, dysphonia, heat or cold intolerance, change in appetite, or palpitations.
