Hello Rian, Thank you for the question.
Has your grandfather checked with the doctor further? Lumps in the neck area can be caused by:
swollen lymph nodes, which generally occur when the body experiences a glandular TB infection, which is tuberculosis infection in lymphoma lymph nodes, which is lymph node cancer. To ascertain whether these lumps are dangerous or not necessarily required direct examination by a doctor. Please advise your grandfather to see a doctor. The doctor will ask about your grandfather's complaints, do a physical examination on your grandfather, and do other examinations such as ultrasound or biopsy of this lump to find the cause. After ascertaining the cause, the doctor will determine the treatment in accordance with the medical conditions experienced by your grandfather. After knowing the medical conditions experienced by your grandfather, your grandfather was also only able to find out what can be done next.
