Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Thyroglossal cyst (swelling) in a 23-year-old woman's neck. Also known as a thyrolingual cyst, this condition is a cyst that develops from a thyroglossal duct, a remnant structure from the formation of the thyroid gland. It will move when the tongue is moved, hence the name. If it becomes excessively large, it can interfere with breathing and will need to be removed.
