Some Common Head And Neck Presentations
Nasal fractures are the most common facial fracture accounting for up to 58.6% of all facial fractures. They can be associated with complications. Septal haematoma requires urgent drainage. Undisplaced nasal fractures without functional symptoms can be managed conservatively. There is a window of two weeks before the displaced nasal bones start uniting. Therefore, it is important to know what requires urgent attention and what needs a referral to a specialist. Soft tissue growths can be benign or malignant. Although benign lesions exceed malignant ones by roughly 100 times, it is still important to conduct an initial assessment for appropriate differential diagnosis.
