Neck cysts are made up of a range of pathologic entities. Epidermoid cysts are benign tumours with cystic cavities bordered by simple squamous epithelium. Adolescent epidermoid cyst in the suprasternal area is an exceptionally uncommon condition. The age of the presentation and the clinical examination help to narrow the differential diagnosis, but imaging is necessary for a precise diagnosis and for pre-treatment planning. For preliminary analysis, ultrasound is frequently employed. The extent and internal composition of the mass can be better understood with the help of computed tomography (CT) scan. A supporting role for diagnosis confirmation is played by fine-needle aspiration cytology (FNAC). The best modality treatment for this kind of lesion is surgical excision.
