The UCSF Pediatric Head and Neck Disorders Program, a service of the Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) Clinic, provides expert care for children and adolescents with lumps, growths or structural abnormalities affecting the head and neck.

These masses, which include tumors and congenital anomalies (differences present since birth), are often located near delicate or vital structures. Our providers use specialized surgical approaches, as well as nonsurgical treatments, to target the problems precisely and help our young patients heal.

We work with a range of pediatric specialists, including oncologists, plastic surgeons, craniofacial surgeons, neurosurgeons and oral surgeons to provide state-of-the-art collaborative care.
