A 5-year-old girl with a mass in her neck is brought to the clinic for an evaluation. Her mother says that this mass appeared 6 months ago and is increasing in size. There is no pain or discomfort. On examination, the mass is in the midline, inferior to the hyoid bone. Laboratory tests reveal normal thyroid panel. Surgery is recommended after a CT scan is performed.
What is the most likely diagnosis?
A-Dermoid cyst
B-Ectopic thyroid gland
D-Thyroglossal duct cyst
E-Branchial cleft cyst
