  58. 58. WHY THYROID MOVES UP WITH DEGLUTITION? THYROID IS ENCLOSED IN PRETRACHEAL FASCIA PTF ATTACHES TO THYROID &CRICOID CARTILAGES(BERRY’S LIGAMENT) SUPERIOR CONSTRICTOR MUSCLE CONTRACTION DURING DEGLUTITION THESE CARTILAGES MOVE UP ALONG WITH THESE THYROID MOVES UP
  59. 59. 11)MOVEMENT WITH TONGUE PROTRUSION IN CASE OF MID LINE NECK SWELLINGS EG:THYROGLOSSAL CYST &FISTULA WHY?  ATTACHED TO FORAMEN CAECUM OF TONGUE

  75. 75. SLIP SIGN *Image via Bing TO DEFFERENTIATE BETWEEN LIPOMA AND CYSTIC SWELLING(BOTH HAVE WELL DEFINED ,REGULAR BORDERS) WHEN EDGE OF A SWELLING IS PALPATED WITH A FINGER ,IF IT SLIPS UNDER THE FINGER,. DOES NOT YIELD TO IT , IT IS A LIPOMA,IF IT YIELDS TO FINGER IS A CYST
  76. 76. 6.CONSISTENCY SOFT – LIPOMA CYSTIC- CYSTS &CHRONIC ABSCESSES FIRM –FIBROMA HARD BUT YIELDING-CHONDROMA BONY HARD-OSTEOMA STONY HARD- CARCINOMA VARIABLE CONSISTENCY- MALIGNANCY
  77. 77. HOW TO ASSESS CONSISTENCY SOFT – EAR LOBULE,ALAE OF NOSE FIRM- TIP OF NOSE,UN CONTRACTED MUSCLE HARD -BRIDGE OF NOSE,CONTRACTED MUSCLE
  78. 78. SIGN OF MOULDING ORINDENTATION LOOK FOR THIS SIGN IN SOFT &CYSTIC SWELLINGS  PRESS A FINGER INTO SWELLING FOR 1-2 MTS AND RELEASE IT IF SWELLING REMAINS INDENTED IT INDICATES PRESENCE OF PULTACEOUS MATERIAL(PUTTY LIKE) SEEN IN  1.SEBACYOUS CYST  2.DERMOID CYST  3.COLONIC MASS WITH FAECAL MATTER
  79. 79. PAGET’S TEST DONE FOR SMALL SWELLINGS TO KNOW THE CONSISTENCY(CYSTIC/SOLID) THE CENTRE AND PERIPHERIES ARE PALPATED WITH INDEX FINGER  CYSTIC SWELLING FEELS SOFTER AT CENTRE THAN PARIPHERY  SOLID SWELLING FEELS FIRMER ATCENTRE THAN PERIPHERY
  80. 80. SPECIAL TESTS DONE IN CASE OF SOFT/CYSTIC SWELLING  7.FLUCTUATION  8.TRANSILLUMINATION  9.COUGH IMPULSE  10.REDUCIBILITY  11.COMPRESSIBILITY IN SOLID SWELLINGS DIRECTLY PROCEED TO TEST FOR RELATION TO OTHER STRUCTURES
  81. 81. 7.FLUCTUATION TRANSMISSION OF IMPULSE IN TWO DIRECTIONS AT RIGHT ANGLES TO EACH OTHER IMPLIES PRSENCE OF FLUID IN THE SWELLING
  82. 82. HOW TO ELICIT FLUCTUATION? IF THE SWELLING IS MOBILE FIRST FIX IT OR ASK THE ASST. TO HOLD IT KEEP 2 INDEX FINGERS ON OPPOSITE POLES WHEN ONE FINGER IS PRESSED THE FINGER AT OPPOSITE END FEELS THE IMPULSE & PASSIVELY LIFTED UP REPEAT THE MANUVERE IN A PLANE AT RIGHT ANGLES TO THE 1ST ONE IF IMPULSE IS FELT IN BOTH PLANES IT IS A POSITIVE FLUCTUATION TEST
  83. 83. LAW BEHIND FLUCTUATION! PASCAL’S LAW  PRESSURE EXERTED TOA FLUID IS TRANSMITTED EQUALLY IN ALL THE DIRECTIONS *Image via Bing
  84. 84. PRINCIPLES WHILE DOING FLUCTUATIONTEST ALWAYS PERFORM IN 2 DIRECTIONS AT RIGHT ANGLES TO EACH OTHER TWO FINGERS SHOULD BE KEPT AS FAR APART AS POSSIBLE FREELY MOBILE SWELLINGS SHOULD BE FIXED FIRST(AS IN HYDROCELE) SMALL SWELLINGS –WATCHING FINGER & DISPLACING FINGER VERY LARGE SWELLINGS MORE THAN ONE FINGFR SHOLD BE USED
  85. 85. PSEUDO FLUCTUATION A FALSE SENSE OF FLUCTUATION FELT IN LARGE SOFT SWELLINGS CONTAINING NO FLUID SEEN IN  LARGE LIPOMA  MYXOMA  SOFT FIBROMA  VASCULAR SARCOMA FAIL TO EXPAND IN OTHER PARTS OF A SWELLING LIKE A TRUE FLUCTUANT SWELLING
  86. 86. CROSS FLUCTUATION FLUCTUATION BETWEEN TWO SEPARATE CYSTIC SWELLINGS COMMUNICATING WITH EACH OTHER SEEN IN  COMPOUND PALMAR GANGLION  PSOAS ABSCESS  PLUNGING RANULA
  87. 87. 8.TRANSILLUMINATION DEMONSTRATION OF TRANSMISSION OF LIGHT THROUGH A SWELLING POSITIVE IN SWELLINGS CONTAINING CLEAR FLUID AND THIN TRANSPARENT WALLS NO TRANSILLUMINATION IF WALL IS THICK, OR TURBID FLUID IS PRESENT(BLOOD,PUS, LYMPH) DARK ROOM , TRANSILLUMINOSCOPE
  88. 88. BRILLIANTLY TRANSILLUMINANT SWELLINGS 1.CYSTIC HYGROMA 2.EPIDIDYMAL CYST 3.MENINGOCELE WITH THIN SKIN 4.RANULA 5.CONGENITAL HYDROCELE
  89. 89. 9.COUGH IMPULSE PERFORMED IN SWELLINGS LIKELY TO BE IN CONTACT WITH ABDOMINAL ,CRANIAL ,SPINAL OR CHEST CAVITY SWELLING IS HELD WITH FINGERS AND PATIENT IS ASKED TO COUGH IF THE SWELLING BECOMES TENSE OR INCREASES IN SIZE IT IS POSITIVE COUGH IMPULSE IN CHILDREN CRYING ACTS AS COUGH
  90. 90. SWELLINGS WITH POSITIVE COUGH IMPULSE IN CONTINUITY WITH ABD. CAVITY  HERNIA  ILIO-PSOAS ABSCSS  LUMBAR ABSCESS IN CONTINUITY WITH PLEURAL CAVITY  EMPYEMA NECESSITANS IN CONTINUITY WITH SPINAL /CRANIAL CAVITY  SPINAL/CRANIAL MENINGOCELE
  91. 91. 10.REDUCIBILITY INDICATION SAME AS FOR COUGH IMPULSE PATIENT IS ASKED TO RELAX SWELLING IS COMPRESSED FROM ALL THE SIDES UNIFORMLY REDUCIBLE SWELLINGS DECREASESIN SIZE OR COMLETELY DISAPPEAR
  92. 92. REDUCIBLE SWELLINGS 1.HERNIA 2.MENINGOCELE 3.VARICOCELE 4.SAPHENA VARIX  A REDUCIBLE SWELLING ONCE REDUCED REAPPEARS ONLY BY STRAINING,COUGHING, OR FORCE OF GRAVITY AS IT INVOLVES DISPLACEMENT OF VISCERS TO AN ADJOINING CAVITY
  93. 93. 11.COMPRESSIBILITY WHEN PRESSURE IS APPLIED TO A SWELLING IT DECREASES IN SIZE AND WHEN PRESSURE IS RELEASED SWELLING REGAINS ITS SIZE ITSELF WITH OUT ANY EXTERNAL FACTORLIKE STRAINING OR COUGHING CHARECTARISTIC SIGN OF VASCULAR HAEMANGIOMA
  94. 94. 12.PULSATILITY WHEN FINGER IS PLACED OVER A PULSATILE SWELLING IT RAISESWITH EACH BEAT TO TYPES OF PULSATIONS  TRANSMITTED PULSATIONS- SEEN IN SWELLINGS PRESENT NEAR AN ARTERY  EX:CA STOMACH LUMP NEAR ABD.AORTA  EXPANSILE PULSATIONS-SEEN IN SWELLINGS ARISING FROM ARTERIES  EX:AORTIC ANEURYSM
  95. 95. HOW TO DIFFERENTIATE? TWO FINGERS ARE PLACED OVER THE SWELLING AND FINGER MOVEMENTS ARE NOTED TRANSMITTED PULSATIONS – FINGERS ARE SIMPLY LIFTED UP EXPANSILE PULSATIONS- FINGERS ARE LIFTED UP AND MOVE APART
  96. 96. IN AN ABDOMINAL LUMP? KNEE ELBOW POSITION  WHEN KEPT IN KNEE ELBOW POSITION  PULSATIONS DISAPPEAR – TRANSMITTED PULSATIONS  PULSATIONS PERSIST –EXPANSILE PULSATIONS
  97. 97. 13.FIXITY TO SKIN SKIN PINCHED OVER DIFFERENT PARTS OF THE SWELLING -CANNOT BE PINCHED IF FIXED TO SKIN SKIN IS MADE TO MOVE OVER THE SWELLING- THE SKIN WILL NOT MOVE IF IT IS FIXED TO SKIN SWELLINGS ARISING FROM SKIN ARE FIXED TO SKIN EX:SEBACEOUS CYST , PAPILLOMA , EPITHELIOMA
  98. 98. 14.RELATION TO SURROUNDING STRUCTURES 1)SUBCUTANEOUS TISSUE  SWELLINGS IN SUB CUTANEOUS TISSUE ARE NOT ADHERENT TO SKIN OR UNDERLYING MUSCLE  LIPOMA-PUSHED SIDEWAYS PUCKERING IS SEEN IN SOME PLACES – DUE PRESENCE OF FIBROUS SEPTA 2)DEEP FASCIA  SWELLING ARISING FROM DEEP FASCIA WILL NOT BE AS MOBILE AS SUBCUTANEOUS SWELLINGS  IT IS DIFFICULT MAKE OUT FIXATION TO DEEP FASCIA AS DEEP FASCIA CANNOT BE MADE TAUT  EVEN IF TUMOUR IS ATTACHED TO UNDERLYING DEEP FASCIA &MUSCLE TUMOUR CAN BE MOVED SIDEWAYS
  99. 99. 3)RELATION TO MUSCLE RELATION SHIP TO MUSCLE IS KNOWN BY THROWING THE CONCERNED MUSCLE INTO CONTRACTION  TUMOURS IN SUB CUTANEOUS TISSUE- BECOME MORE PROMINENT &REMAIN MOBILE  TUMOURS ARISING FROM MUSCLE / INCORPORATED IN MUSCLE-FIXED&IMMOBILE  TUMORS DEEP TO MUSCLE –LESS PROMINENT, OR DISAPPEARS,DIFFICULT TO PALPATE
  100. 100. 4)SWELLING IN RELATION TO TENDON MOVES ALONG WITH TENDON&BECOMES FIXED WHEN MUSCLE CONTRACTS 5)IN CONNECTION WITH VESSELS &NERVES DO NOT MOVE ALONG VESSELS OR NERVES BUT MOVE TO A LITTLE EXTENT AT RIGHT ANGLES TO THEIR AXES 6)IN CONNECTION WITH BONE IS ABSOLUTELY FIXED IRRESPECTIVE OF MUSCLE CONTRACTION
  101. 101. PERCUSSION LIMITED VALUE IN SWELLINGS  1.TYMPANIC NOTE  ENTEROCELE  PHARYNGOCELE  2.HYDATID THRILL  HYDATID CYST
  102. 102. AUSCULTATION BRUIT OVER PULSATILE &VASCULAR SWELLINGS BRUIT  SHORT,MEDIUM PITCHED MURMUR HEARD OVER THE SWELLING WITH EACH PULSE WAVE  EX:ANEURYSM  THYROTOXIC GOITRE
  103. 103. REGIONAL LYMPH NODES DRAINING LYMPH NODES EXAMINED IF INVOLVED NEXT HIGHER GROUP EXAMINED IF THE SWELLING ITSELF IS ALYMPH NODE EXAMINE  1.OTHER LYMPH NODAL GROUPS  2.SPLEEN  3.LIVER  TO EXCLUDE SYSTEMIC CAUSE  EXAMINE DRAINAGE AREA TO EXCLUDE INFECTION
  104. 104. PRESSURE EFFECTS 1.OVER BONE – FEEL FOR BONY EROSION  AS IN DERMOID CYST 2.IN LIMBS  DISTAL PULSES- PRESSURE OVER ARTERIES  EDEMA &DILATED VEINS – PRESSURE OVER VEINS  PARESIS& MUSCLE WASTING – PRESSURE OVER NERVES MOVEMENTS OF JOINTS

  107. 107. GENERAL EXAMINATION
  108. 108. Question time? WHAT IS UNIVARSAL TUMOUR? WHAT ARE THE PROCESSESS FUSING IN EXTERNAL ANGULAR DERMOID? WHAT IS THE TUMOUR SHOWING POSITIVE SLIP SIGN? WHAT IS THE SITE AT WHICH A LIPOMA MOST COMMONLY UNDERGOES SARCOMATOUS CHANGE? WHAT IS THE MOST COMMON SITE FOR CYSTIC HYGROMA? WHAT IS THE OTHER NAME FOR BASAL CELL CARCINOMA?
