Hello, Elsa Elfianita. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Symptoms in the form of swelling / lump near the left ear can be caused by several possibilities, including enlarged lymph nodes (can be caused by viral / bacterial infection, gland tuberculosis, lymph node tumors, or spread of malignancies from other organs) or enlargement of salivary glands ( can be caused by infection [parotitis] which can become an abscess, or parotid tumor).
If complaints are felt to be disturbing or progressively increasing in a short period of time, we recommend that you immediately consult your child directly to the doctor, ENT specialist, or pediatrician to get the appropriate evaluation and treatment. The doctor will conduct a more complete history about the history of the disease, physical examination, and supporting examinations if there are indications, for example: blood tests and biopsy.
At home, you are advised to give your child to drink plenty of water, balanced nutritious food, and adequate rest. Thus information from us. Hopefully always healthy. May be useful.
