Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Previously, we want to clarify, that one of the common confusions felt by ordinary people is to distinguish between lumps and glands, perhaps because doctors often say that the lumps that occur in a person's body are glands. Regarding this, glands are actually common things in the human body, and there are many glands, lymph nodes, sweat glands, oil glands, mammary glands and so on which are scattered in various parts of the body. So that when it is said to be a gland, it should ideally be clarified what is meant by the gland.
Even so, when there is a lump and is said to be a gland, often what is meant is swollen lymph nodes. Lymph nodes are glands that spread but are concentrated in the neck, armpits and groin, functioning as endurance and once upon a time when the immune system is unable to cope with infection, swelling can occur. So back to the initial statement, lumps and glands are different, swollen lymph nodes is one diagnosis of the condition of a lump in the body, but not all lumps are lymph nodes.
So in the case of your mother, our important advice to do first is to see her doctor first, to see whether it's true lymph nodes, or boils, hernias, growth of fat tissue, tumors, or others. For this reason, we suggest that the examination be done by a surgeon. We understand that surgery sounds scary, but seeing a surgeon does not have to always be operated on. You can ask to look for other avenues regarding treatment other than surgery, but for the diagnosis it must be upright, and that by check. Say for example your mother's surgeon later states that she must have surgery, your mother has the right to refuse, but at least an examination has been made and the diagnosis has been made. After that you can find another doctor to find out his opinion if you want. If indeed the other doctor also states that it must be dissected, then that might be the case.
Meanwhile, there is no need to worry too much, reduce heavy lifting, maintain ideal body weight, and to relieve pain, try to warmly compress the swollen parts and consumption of anti-inflammatory or anti-inflammatory drugs sold freely by reading the rules of use. So, hopefully answering your question.
