A 54-year-old male with a three-month history of a tender right neck mass associated with right-sided headaches, epistaxis, otalgia, diplopia, and paresthesias of the right face and tongue, was referred to the otolaryngology for further evaluation. The patient reported fevers, night sweats and weight loss. A fine needle aspirate of the dominant right neck mass yielded a preliminary diagnosis of squamous cell carcinoma. The patient was then referred to the radiology for diagnostic imaging.
