Frontal and lateral views of the soft tissues of the neck were evaluated and reveal there is an asymmetry seen to the left-sided soft tissues of the patient's neck which appear somewhat enlarged when compared to patient's right side. However the trachea appears to be normal caliber and contour. Lateral views show a patent airway. The adenoids and tonsils appear normal caliber without evidence of hypertrophy. Airway appears patent. Osseous structures appear grossly normal.IMPRESSION:
